Planning Your Sharm el-Sheikh Visit

Where is it?

Sharm el-Sheikh is a former fishing port located at the southernmost tip of Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. In the 1990’s, strict environmental laws were introduced to protect the coastal environment from unsustainable fishing methods, and the city has since found its feet as a major hub of tourism.

Best time to visit?

The best time to go to Sharm el-Sheikh depends on how you handle hot weather. July and August regularly see temperatures in the mid-40s. November and December see a more merciful climate, although sightseers should note that the days begin to darken around 6:00PM. If you don’t mind the crowds, then Sharm is a great place to spend a sunny Christmas and New Year!

★★★★★ Excellent tour! Amazing grace at the holy place!

It was a great experience! The guides were great and helpful. The trip and the walk at night were not exhausting. The stars, the sunrise at the top of the holy mountain were amazing! The walk back in the early morning and the visit of the holy monastery were great ! I would spend much more time in the monastery if it would be possible. The trip back was also fine. It would be great to spend more time at this holy place !
