5 Best Must Visit Sights in Sharm El Sheikh
5 min read

If you eagerly want to relax on the beach, this is one of Egypt's top places. Sharm is within day-trip reach of many of the Sinai Peninsula's historical and ecological features, so non-divers will have plenty to do on land. Sharm el-Sheikh is a terrific choice for a beach vacation after touring the country's temples and tombs, whether you are planning to visit for the sand or the water life.

Sharm El Sheikh serves as the administrative centre for Egypt's South Sinai Governorate, which encompasses the smaller coastal cities of Dahab and Nuweiba, as well as the hilly interior of St. Catherine and Mount Sinai. The city and holiday resort is a major tourism hub in Egypt, as well as a popular destination for international conferences and diplomatic gatherings. Even if you are purchasing a Sharm El Sheikh Egypt tours then make sure to pin down these destinations on your list.

1. Thistlegorm Wreck Diving Spot

A journey to Sharm el-Sheikh for many advanced divers implies only one thing: diving the Thistlegorm. This ship, loaded with cargo to resupply British troops, was sunk by German bombers during World War II, making it one of the best wreck dives in the world. Fish now flit around the cargo holds, which are full of jeeps, motorcycles, and munitions that never made it to the front. Because the wreck is located in the Straits of Gubal, off the western coast of the Sinai Peninsula, overnight liveaboard tours are available.

2. Ras Muhammed Reserve

The Ras Mohammed peninsula, home to some of the world's top diving spots, is one of Sharm El Sheikh's most popular attractions. The peninsula also has the second-largest Mangrove Forest in the world and a saltwater lake, making it a popular tourist destination. Anyone visiting Sharm El Sheikh should make a journey to Ras Mohammed National Park. Old Quay Beach (which features coral reefs that may be reached directly from the shore) and Aqaba Beach are two of the nicest beaches in the area.

The Shark Observatory, which is located on Ras Mohammed's southern edge and offers spectacular views of both the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba, is a must-see for visitors.

3. Naama Bay

The centre of action in Sharm El Sheikh is Naama Bay, with its white sand beach and palms flowing in the breeze. Naama Bay's pedestrian-only roadway runs the length of the beach and is encircled by various luxury resorts as an alternative to the sand.

Naama Bay is the epitome of what a beach should be. Naama Bay is also one of Egypt's best sunbathing spots, with a variety of options. You'll never have to leave this sand-filled paradise because there are plenty of parasols and chairs on the beach, as well as cafes right on the sand.

4. Ghibli Raceway

You'll feel like a Formula One driver if you spend the day at Ghibli Raceway. Ghibli is one of just four A Grade go-karting tracks in the world, and it's suited for both youngsters and adults. All equipment is given, and there are four possible routes varying in length from 750 to 2,808 feet. From the Lounge Zone, family and friends can watch.

5. Saint Catherine Monastery

Saint Catherine's Monastery, the first historical location in the Sinai Peninsula, is where Moses is claimed to have received the Ten Commandments. At the foot of Mount Sinai, it is located. This Greek Orthodox monastery, in addition to hosting the Old Testament's "burning bush," also includes a museum with a collection of holy icons and antique manuscripts, many of which are highly rare. This expedition, which includes a walk to the summit of Mount Sinai, is a must-do for history fans in Sharm El Sheikh.
