This area of Sharm is very beautiful with lovely beaches and the most amazing coral and snorkelling on offer. Boat trips are very reasonable. Also there is the markets and Mercato shopping area - good to try out bartering skills. There are many restaurants and bars on offer .

A lot of small colorfull fishes and corals with some of big fishes but expect to see any marine creatures. You can do snorkling too as the coral only 50 meters from the bech and the depth from less than one meter.
