From a fishing village to Egypt’s largest resort by the Red Sea

Just like most of the Mediterranean’s great resorts of today, Sharm underwent a stunning transformation during the last 2o years or so. 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. Slowly the rumor spread over the amazing coral reefs and the mild climate, and during the last 25 years the area has undergone an amazing transformation from the small fishing village of Naama Bay to a modern holiday paradise.
