Ras um Sid is a nice beach located at the southern tip of the Sharm el Sheikh peninsula. Here you can get lovely views of the Red Sea and also enjoy beautiful coral & colourful marine life while snorkelling off the beach. I had a nice time during my recent visit here

Ras um Sid is among the most popular places to go for a nice time on the beac. Great food, good music and clear water. Here is one of the best local dive sites in SHARM, famous for it's huge gorgonia fans. Great place to start your diving holliday in SHARM.

Perfect snorklling and diving spot, but the currents may be strong, so be careful! You can see here different type of fish, sometimes also a whaleshark or mantaray can be spotted but we were not so lucky to see them.

this dive site is very amazing. I rate as the best dive sites (probably snorkelling as well) at Sharm local sites; comparable with tiran and ras mohammed. don't miss the beautiful boomies with thousands glass fish and soft coral at 27 m and massive jungle of coral and reef at the end of your dive.

i dont's see it's good for swimming due to rocks as it's almost on the hill. but it's OK for snorkeling.

Decent dive from a boat but dive is along the shore reefs. VERY busy location. Divers watch your head when ascending - lots of boat traffic.
