Diving and water sports

Sharm el-Sheikh was Egypt’s first diving resort and continues to be popular for its clear waters and coral-festooned reefs. Key attractions include the world-famous Ras Mohammed National Park, off the Sinai Peninsula tip, and nearby Nabq National Park – rated among the world’s best by Jacques Cousteau. Boat excursions to more distant reefs and wrecks are also popular. Taba Heights also offers excellent diving and snorkelling, notably at Pharaoh’s Island. The Red Sea is now a major centre for windsurfing and kite surfing because of the strong and reliable off-shore sea breezes
