From a fishing village to Egypt’s largest resort by the Red Sea
Just like most of Mediterranean’s great resorts of today, Sharm El Sheikh underwent through a stunning transformation. From a small and humble fishing village, it has been developed into a state-of-the-art resort while preserving most of its natural charm. The Red Sea, known for its year round sunny climate, this destination is a stark contrast to what the Danish is accustomed to.
Sharm El Sheikh’s amazing underwater world
The beautiful coral reefs along the coast are home to colorful fish and beautiful corals. There are about 245 different corals in the Red Sea out of the well 2000 known, and the sea is home to up to 1300 different species of fish. There is enough to look at – whether you snorkel or choose to go down to 20-30 meters with a tank on your back. The big experiences await.
As mentioned, Sharm el Sheikh was originally a small sleepy fishing village on the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula.
