Om el Sid hill is essentially a plateau rising gracefully above the translucent blue of the surrounding gulf, on the southern tip of over thirty miles of uninterrupted beachfront. You can go for walks round the yachts and fishing boats of the harbour, some of which recall a time when fishing, not tourism, was the main source of sustenance here. Take a hike by jeep or camel up to Mount Sinai for panoramic mountainside views and a trip to the ancient monastery of St Catherine there, the world’s oldest open church.

Things To Do on Om El Sid Holidays

Sharm el Sheikh is packed with entertainments within and without; you’ve got Fun Land Theme Parks and a desert ice rink for the kids, the huge nature reserves of Tiran Island and Ras Mohammed National Park and even a museum dedicated to the history of diving! Talking of diving, that’s the main reason many come here! On el Sid is among the world’s finest diving destinations, so say hello to the rays, dolphins, and turtles and explore the giant reefs offshore. Of course no trip to this area would be complete without visiting the beaches and reefs of the acclaimed Sharks Bay, which is just a short trip away by car.


Sharm el Sheikh has a host of great festivals from the Coptic New Year to camel racing in April and May, plus July’s fishing competition, in which you can even compete. There are also lots of stalls in the bazaar willing to endow you with a souvenir or two, just remember to haggle the price down! You can sample some of the delights of Egypt in the Old Town where you'll find all manner of kebabs and coffee shops awaiting you.


Om el Sid holidays offer you a quiet time on the southern tip of Sharm el Sheikh, but your right next to the clubs of Naama Bay and the international cuisine and English pubs in Sharm proper. There’s no need to travel here to have a good time. Try the casino for some blackjack and craps, the Bus Stop and Pascha for some raving to the sounds of international DJs, or the beach, for a quiet drink on the golden sands at sunset.
