Sharm el-Sheikh is the Sinai Peninsula's major tourism center and one of the world's top diving destinations. It was the underwater wonders of the Red Sea - particularly the waters of the Ras Mohammed Marine Park just south of town - that put "Sharm" center-stage in the first place, and the diving and snorkeling on offer here continue to attract flocks of diving enthusiasts each year. This is also one of Egypt's best destinations if you just want to chill out on the beach, and it's a particular favorite for family-friendly holidays due to the excellent facilities on offer. Whether you're here for the sand or the fish life, Sharm el-Sheikh is a great choice for a beach break after exploring the temples and tombs in the rest of the country.
