The charm of Sharm is its commitment to having a good time - simple, uncomplicated and jolly. What more do you want from a holiday, after all?

 

SURFING THE DREAM

If you thought that hanging on to a big kite was fairly ambitious, how about clinging on to a surfboard with your feet at the same time? Remarkably, this has become a very popular activity at Kite Junkies www.kitejunkies.com, Sharm-el-Sheik's first and only Kitesurfing Centre. There are good courses for beginners.

MAGIC OF THE DEEP

Sharm first attracted divers, who were drawn by the fabulous Red Sea waters. You can discover for yourself what brought them here at the splendid Ras Mohamed National Park, home to thousands of fish species and hundreds of coral types. Snorkellers, too, can enjoy a great look at the undersea world here.

 

ROMANCE IN THE DESERT

For many people, the highlight of a Sharm stay is a romantic outing into the desert to enjoy traditional tented hospitality, with a generous spread of local food and typical entertainment.

An added bonus is a guide to the stars, which shine particularly brightly here.

 

SUNRISE ON SINAI

Ambitious visitors can leave Sharm in the wee small hours in order to reach the top of Mount Sinai at the crack of dawn to watch the sunrise. The sun floods the landscape with a riot of colors. Given the biblical connections of this wonderful setting, it is a surprisingly moving experience.

PYRAMID SELLING

Spare a day from the sun and sand for a memorable day trip to the Egyptian capital to see the Pyramids, the Sphinx and even enjoy a boat ride on the Nile.

The trip involves a return flight to Cairo and a fairly breathless schedule but, if you can spare a break from Sharm's relaxed delights, it will provide an unforgettable highlight to your holiday.

 

ADD ON A NILE CRUISE

See the two sides of Egypt - spend a week in the sun on the Red Sea and combine it with a second week cruising on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, seeing breathtaking sights such as the Valley of the Kings, the burial place of the pharaohs, and the amazing temple at Karnak.

If you really want to discover the ancient wonders of Egypt, a cruise on the River Nile is a magical route into history. The Nile has been Egypt's lifeline since ancient times and there is no better way to trace the passage of Egypt's past than to follow the river's course.
