Sharks Bay, the beautiful cove some four miles north of Sharm el Sheikh, on the consistently warm waters and clear skies of the Sinai peninsula, remain among that area’s most popular. This is principally due to the fantastic diving opportunities on offer, with a great reef housing multicoloured fish and corals that prove a spectacle for old diving hands and newbies alike!

But there’s more to this resort than meets the eye. It has everything you would expect from Egypt holidays, but where holidays in Sharks Bay excel is in the diversity of entertainment and activities on offer. Whether you are coming on holidays to Sharks Bay with the whole family or for a romantic break for two, you’ll revel in the intoxicatingly chilled out atmosphere!

Sharks Bay itself is a small, light-sanded cove situated between Nabq to the north with Naama Bay and Ras Um Sid to the south. Sharks Bay is held in high regard for it’s crystal clear waters, clement for divers with a provincial atmosphere. But remember - there are miles of Red Sea coastline to explore, all round the peninsula, past Sharm’s port with it’s yachts and cruise ships. Don’t forget to go on jeep safari through the Red Sea’s fabulous dried river valleys and monolithic mountains because the view from the summits here is incredible.
