General Information About Sharm El Sheikh

That said, Sharm isn't everyone's cup of tea. The relentless sprawl of megahotels along the coastline here has led to pressing issues of sustainability and environmental degradation. Since the downing of Metrojet Flight 9268 in 2015, the legions of European holidaymakers who flock here on all-inclusive tour packages have petered out because of the lack of direct flights from Europe.
Many independent travellers prefer the lower-key and more backpacker-friendly town of Dahab.

History

Sharm el-Sheikh was uninhabited throughout most of historical time due to its prohibitive climate, but it gained modern importance because of its strategic situation commanding the narrow entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba. The entrance is 14 miles (23 km) northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh’s bay, at the Strait of Tiran. The strait, which is blocked by islets and coral reefs, is hemmed in by the Raʾs Naṣrānī cape on the west and by Tiran Island on the east. After Israel’s War of Independence (1948–49), Egyptian guns were installed in the area to prevent shipping from reaching Elat, Israel’s only port on the Gulf of Aqaba. The installations were captured by Israelis in the Sinai Campaign of 1956 (see Suez Crisis), and the bay and strait were guarded by a United Nations Emergency Force from 1957 to 1967. Egypt’s withdrawal of the UN force and its closure of the strait in May 1967 helped precipitate the Six-Day War of June 1967. Following that war, Israel again occupied the area until Israeli forces withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula in the early 1980s in fulfillment of the Camp David Accords peace agreement negotiated with the Egyptians.

Sharm El Sheikh Nightlife

The Egyptian Riviera, Sharm El Sheikh’s Naama Bay is a crescent shaped cluster of international hotels, nightclubs, cafes and casinos. As the sun sets and the air cools down, Sharm lights up the night as the beat goes on. The club scene in Sharm is as diverse as in any large urban city. Many of the clubs offer different levels for different experiences. Resident DJs blasting house music from Taj Mahal or Desert Party in Dolce Vita. Hard Rock Cafe in Nabq Bay, a very upscale restaurant, turns into a chic club at midnight nightly playing an international variety of music from old school R&B to the most contemporary electronic mixed sounds. Space Sharm – with 2 outdoor and 1 indoor space – all with views overlooking the Red Sea as the EDM music pulses though the venue. Put on your poker face and let Lady Luck guide you to one of the many casinos located in the Sharm el-Sheikh area. The Aladin in Domina Coral Bay or the Sinai Grand Casino is very popular with international visitors with a wide variety of the latest slots, video poker, table games and a card room that has Texas Hold-em and 5-card. Tip: Make sure you have your passport with you if you want to gamble.
