The best beaches of Sharm El Sheikh
Thanks to a decent Egyptian service, clear sea and gorgeous coral reefs, Charm, without exaggeration, is the most popular Egyptian resort among foreign tourists …
In this article we will talk about the beach nuances of this resort area, and determine the best beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh from the point of view of a comfortable beach holiday.
The overwhelming majority of local beaches here are coral, that is, corals start almost from the coast, stretching for an average of 20-50 meters, because without special protective shoes it is dangerous to swim from the shore, especially for children. Almost all the hotels have equipped their beaches with pontoons that go beyond the boundaries of the reefs so that tourists can safely reach the depths along them without fear of cutting themselves on corals.
Good or bad, the opinions of tourists on this subject undressed. But we think many will agree that coral beaches are the main treasure of the Red Sea resorts, because right here at the coast you can see all the diversity of the underwater world right by the coast.
In addition, many beaches in Sharm are quite narrow, rocky and multi-level, which is why you can only descend into the sea by stairs. Therefore, when choosing a hotel, especially if you are traveling with children, we advise you to study its description and photos of its beach.
The first hotels in Sharma, located in Naama Bay, can be said to be lucky, because they managed to solve the problem with corals – they just knocked them out, thus making themselves sandy entrances to the sea. But for more than 20 years, it is strictly forbidden to cut down corals in the Red Sea, therefore in most hotels of Shar-El-Sheikh, beaches are only coral.
If you are interested in beaches only with a good sandy entrance to the sea, these are, first and foremost, hotels of the first line of the Naama Bay area. There are not many of them, mostly 4-5 stars and I work on half board (breakfast and dinner).
Here we can advise, first of all, the Hilton Fayrouz 4 + * hotel, it has the longest beach in the bay – almost 700 meters, much of which is clean of corals, but there are also small areas with corals.
Next to Naama there is another great hotel – Movenpick Naama Bay 5 *, its former name
Sofitel The hotel is built on a hill with a great view of the whole bay and it has as many as 4 small beaches, including with a sandy entrance to the sea.
Go ahead, now to the beaches of the Bay of Sharm el Maya (Sharm el Maya), located approximately 7.5 kilometers south-west of Naama Bay. Here is the only natural sandy beach of Sharm El Sheikh.
Here we advise Iberotel Palace 5 * hotels (since autumn 2013 it works only with adults, that is, they don’t accommodate children here) and Dessole Seti Sharm Resort 4 *. These two hotels really have the best sandy beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh, where you can swim barefoot without any problems.
