Egyptian jewel on the Sinai Peninsula

The holiday destination on the Sinai Peninsula entices with year-round summer temperatures, warm seawater, and an impressive underwater world. Put simply: Sharm El Sheikh ticks all the boxes for a fabulous beach holiday.

With 365 sunny days a year, there is no such thing as a “bad beach day” in Sharm El Sheikh. Besides relaxing on the beach (in the Naama Bay, for instance), there are plenty of culture troves to explore. An excursion to Mount Sinai and to the Saint Catherine Monastery is a journey back in time, to when Moses received the Ten Commandments.
