I have been to Sharm many times and always make it a point to go to Elfanar at least once per trip. It will cost £6 to get in but worth it.

I dived from Fanar beach. It was a very nice diving place with rich coral and fish variety. Amazing visibility up to 30 meters and calm water. Must visit again and do night dive!

Amazing for snorkeling if you like that! Lots of different beaches to choose from and everyone seems very friendly and helpful.... More
