Sharm el-Sheikh

Sharm el-Sheik is a city situated on the Southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, on the coastal strip between the Red Sea and Mount Sinai.

Sharm el-Sheik's major industry is foreign tourism. The calm and clear waters of the Red Sea provide an ideal location for various watersports, and particularly for recreational diving and snorkeling (which many consider to be among the best in the world). A number of large international hotels and noted restaurants have been constructed there, as have a number of golf courses and other leisure facilities.
