An excursion from Sharm to Mount Sinai, the mountain where Moses received the 10 Commandments, according to the Bible, is possible from Sharm el-Sheikh. Mount Sinai measures a bit less than 2300 meters in height and is surrounded by higher peaks from all sides.
It stands near the town of Saint Catherine, where you can visit the old monastery with the same name. Built in the 6th century by the Christian Church, it is one of the oldest monasteries in the world, home to one of the oldest libraries and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Another excellent day trip is to Ras Mohammed National Park, located just 38 km from town. It is home to a beautiful mangrove forest, a salt lake and some of the most outstanding beached, fitted with excellent snorkeling facilities. The park stretches across the both coasts of the Red Sea and offers outstanding views.
Do you know where the exotic dream of Sharm el-Sheikh begins? It’s Naama Bay, an idyllic place full of white sand and palm trees, boutiques and posh restaurants. It’s the center of luxurious resorts and the place to visit if you are looking for a really lavish seaside experience. From here, of course, you can do much more than sunbathe. You can practice water sports, go shopping or embark on a series of other exciting trips around the Sinai Peninsula.
Seen as Naama Bay is such a tourist hub, there are excellent transport options to take you there and back to the airport. What we recommend is to take your time before the trip and book online your taxi Sharm el Sheikh Airport Naama Bay.
