With flight times of just five hours from the UK, holidays to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt offer an accessible taste of faraway lands. Whether you come for the endless sunshine, the golden sands, the luxury hotels or the intriguing Egyptian culture, Sharm El Sheikh doesn't disappoint.
Sitting pretty on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, Sharm El Sheikh boasts a whopping 35kms of soft sands which meet the azure waters of the Red Sea. The resort is lively, vibrant and buzzes with electric energy, with plenty to do to tempt you away from that seafront sunlounger.
If you're a waterbabe, you'll be in your element on Sharm El Sheikh holidays, where you'll find every watersport you can imagine - as well as amazing opportunities to see beneath the surface on diving and snorkelling excursions. Boat trips are also popular - you can cruise the Red Sea and even take a trip to the breathtaking 'lost city' of Petra, which is featured in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!
If you're more of a land lover, you can head into the desert on a quad bike, jeep or even camel back for a real Arabian Nights experience. Peek into the traditional Bedouin culture with a stop at a desert camp, where you can sip mint tea while looking out over the never-ending sand dunes.
Of course, Egypt is world famous for its cultural riches, and even the luxury resorts of the Red Sea coast are within reach of the Ancient Egyptian wonders of the world. Day trips by air are available to both Cairo and Luxor if you dream of seeing the pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings or Luxor Temple. The magical Nile River is also on many must-see wish lists, and affordable air travel from Sharm El Sheikh can make all Ancient Egyptian dreams come true.
Back in Sharm El Sheikh the vibe is thoroughly modern, although you will find nods to traditional culture throughout the resort. The Bedouin Bazaar is a great place to haggle over glass, leather, jewellery and pottery - be sure to stop and fortify yourself on some classic Egyptian cuisine, including koshary, a macaroni dish, or a bowl of bright green molokhia soup.
