What is Sharm like at the moment

Its been a couple of years since we went to Sharm El Sheikh (Sharks Bay) Thinking of returning this year but with all the trouble want to find out how it is out there if you have just returned. Did you feel safe. Thanks in advance

We're recently back Karen although it seems a lifetime away, security has been heightened around Sharm. There are a few more road blocks, what you may notice more in comparison with your previous visit is how quiet the resort has become.

A few forum members have arrived back this week (NaNa, Steve), so they will be able to give you the heads up up to date.

Think you'll be booking to return ;-)

A bit extra security along the main road but never made us feel unsafe. We just came back last night and would go back tomorrow again if I could afford if. Hope you have a nice holiday if you decide to go

Came back Monday after a 12 day stay and had a wonderful holiday with no safety concerns at all whilst we were there.

Yes we did have questions before we went and we were very worried but once in Sharm we felt very safe .

There is extra security and we also would go back tomorrow if we could .

I'm here now. I haven't been here for 10 years so things are different anyway. I wouldn't know if there was 'extra' security as I don't remember what it was like before.

When you say 'all the trouble', I'm not sure what you're referring to but i feel perfectly safe here. I'm not doing any trips out but other than diving and flying to Cairo I think my company has cancelled most others anyway.

So, I'm sure it's been said before but you're probably safer here than out in London.

Did you go out of the hotel much? Did you visit naama? Just wondering how much it has impacted and are the hotels quieter because of it all. Really want to go next month ive been twice before but i like trips and visiting naama bay would people still recommend this?

We came back from Naama a few weeks ago. It's quieter than normal but still felt safe. We went out a few evenings for meals and drinks, no problems.
