Self-Catering Holiday Rentals in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt

Aug 6, 2008
If you're looking for a holiday filled with sun, sea and sand, then you need look no further than Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.

It is a fantastic city, situated on the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula on the Red Sea coast, which has become a popular beach resort with tourists.

Not surprisingly, it offers some amazing diving opportunities in lovely warm, clear waters, along with its beautiful coral reefs and marine life. It's well known across the world for its superb diving facilities and amenities, such as diving shops, centres and diving training.

However, Sharm el-Sheikh is much more than a great diving (and snorkelling) destination and it has plenty to offer its visitors who don't wish to go exploring under the sea. But if you appreciate water sports, then this is a good area to try your hand at such activities as wind-surfing, para-sailing, banana boat riding or canoeing.

And if you prefer land-based sports, you will be able to enjoy golf, tennis, camel riding, horse-riding etc in this area of Egypt.

Sharm el-Sheikh is sure a great place to do sporty pursuits. For example, there's the Ras Mohammed National Park. Again, this area offers excellent opportunities to go diving and snorkelling.

But if you don't want to get wet, then there are many beautiful landscapes to explore in this area, including mountains and valleys. There are plenty of day trips and excursions you can join. For example, you could visit St. Catherine's Monastery, where Moses reputedly received the Ten Commandments. Or you might prefer to just lie on a beach all day. The choice is yours!

Sharm el-Sheikh has a good selection of facilities and amenities available for its visitors. It is well served with shops, restaurants, bars etc so you will be able to stock up on your supplies during your self-catering holiday.

Na'ama Bay is the main resort in Sharm el-Sheikh and boasts shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. It also has a lovely beach and many diving centres. Here you can either discover what's beneath the ocean or just chill out on the beach.

Ras Um Sid has a fantastic beach and is also a great location for snorkelling. You can also do other watersports here.

Sharm el Maya (Moya), meanwhile, is the old town area of Sharm el-Sheikh with a pretty bay and a natural harbour. It boasts a nice sandy beach and restaurants.

You will no doubt want to dine out during your holiday. You will be spoilt for choice in this area of Egypt, as Sharm el-Sheikh has a wide variety of restaurants to suit all tastes. Whether you (or the kids) simply fancy some fast food or you have the time to enjoy a meal in a restaurant. It's all available here.

The nightlife is also good. There are many bars and clubs to keep you entertained. There are even casinos if you want to do a spot of gambling during your holiday.

Sharm el-Sheikh is an ideal destination for a holiday property rental. It's no wonder that it's such a popular tourist destination. It's brimming with sun, superb watersports facilities, tourist attractions and a whole lot more!
