There are almost no real attractions in Sharm el-Sheikh, and most of what travel agencies and excursion sellers give out as local attractions, in our opinion, should rather be classified as tourist entertainment. In general, if you want to visit Egypt in order to get acquainted with its rich history, for trips to the museum, visiting ancient palaces, temples and pyramids, it is better to go straight to Cairo, Luxor or Alexandria. But if you find yourself on vacation in Sharm el-Sheikh, then you should know about those few interesting places and excursions that are available to tourists here.

There are two interesting mosques and two Christian temples in Sharma itself. Although they have all been built over the past 30 years and are not historical places, it is worth visiting them because of the beauty of architecture and scale, and simply because there is nothing else to see here. The colorful "Old Market" will also be interesting, although in fact it is not old at all, but rather stylized in the old days. You can also visit two museums in the city, and this is where all the real attractions in Charm end. We will give a detailed description of these attractions and how to visit them later on this page.

Excursions in Sharm el-Sheikh

Things are much better with the sights that can be visited with excursions. The most popular and obligatory for all guests of the resort is, of course, a trip to Cairo and the Pyramids. We also recommend visiting Ras Mohammed National Park, Mount Moses and St. Catherine's Monastery, the Color Canyon. Unfortunately, inexpensive group bus trips to Luxor from Sharm el-Sheikh are not sold because the ancient city is too far away. Separately, we can mention excursions to Jordan or Israel: these are worthy trips, but they are expensive and will not be affordable for everyone.

All other options for excursions that are offered at the resort are, by and large, more tourist entertainment. For example, these are walks in the desert with riding ATVs or camels and visiting fake Bedouin villages; sea cruises to islands with swimming, snorkeling or diving; acquaintance with the underwater world on a boat with a transparent bottom or on a bathyscaphe, etc.

Where to buy excursions in Sharm el-Sheikh

If you are resting on a ticket, then the next day after arrival there will be an organizational meeting with the hotel guide, where you will be offered to buy excursions from the tour operator. We do not dissuade you from shopping with a hotel guide, but we inform you that the same excursions can be bought much cheaper on the street or online. In our practice, the difference in price for some tours reached up to two times. So you decide for yourself what is better for you: to buy more reliably and conveniently from a hotel guide, or with minor inconveniences on the street, but cheaper.

Well, if you want it to be both convenient and inexpensive, you can buy excursions online on trusted search engine sites with reviews. In this case, you can read reviews about the tour from other tourists, and book your favorite tour with a small prepayment by credit card or even without it. Payment of the main part of the cost is carried out directly to the guide already during the excursion, so everything is safe and reliable:

Be careful when choosing excursions in Egypt, so as not to incur additional expenses! To do this, we recommend reading the descriptions and reviews on the sites mentioned above. Even if you end up buying an excursion on the spot from a guide or a travel agency, this knowledge will still come in handy, since all programs are typical. The point is that many tours are built in such a way that with a relatively low cost and an allegedly rich program without additional charges, there will simply be nothing to do during the excursion. These are mainly recreational and walking tours to the desert with riding ATVs or camels, sea tours, during which you may have to pay extra for equipment rental or visiting certain places. Also, during more serious trips, for example to Cairo and the Pyramids, guides will actively offer camel rides, boat trips on the Nile, etc., for an additional fee, and these additional entertainments are not always worth how much they ask for.

Entertainment in Sharm el-Sheikh

But with tourist entertainment in Charm, the situation is much better than with attractions. Here you can have fun with children in the water park, go on the already mentioned recreational excursions to the desert or islands, snorkel or dive, ride a banana or parachute, watch the underwater world from a glass-bottomed boat or dive to the depths on a bathyscaphe. In the evening, adults can go to try their luck at the casino, visit one of the nightclubs with modern music, take a walk and go shopping in one of the walking areas in the Old Market, in the area of the promenade and pedestrian street in Naama Bay or on Soho Square.

And now we present to your attention a list and description of attractions and entertainment in Sharm el-Sheikh, indicating opening hours, costs and how to get to them yourself:

The fact is that groups of tourists with sightseeing tours are not taken to this temple, as to the much more famous Coptic Orthodox church of As-Samayun.

Al Mustafa Mosque

El Mustafa Mosque, photo

>The Mustafa Mosque is the second most important of the mosques of Sharm El-Sheikh. A beautiful and elegant building with two tall minarets is quite worthy of attention and visiting, but often tourists and guidebooks confuse it with the Al Sahaba Mosque, which is located in the Old Town area on the Old Market. El Mustafa was built in 2006, but this does not detract from its value for believers and visitors of the city. on the left side of the building there is a library where you can get a brochure about islam in russian. Different halls are provided for the prayers of men and women. At the entrance, capes are issued for passage to the mosque, where you can walk. According to the reviews of those who have been here, tourists are not allowed inside, but this is not true. All mosques are closed to tourists only during prayer, for the cleaning period, and the rest of the time visiting is allowed and even welcome.

Cairo and the Pyramids

Pyramids of Giza

Everyone should go to the capital Cairo, to the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza! These are the most significant and important sights in Egypt, its business card. And such excursions are available from Sharm el-Sheikh. However, one feature needs to be taken into account: to travel to Cairo, you need a full-fledged Egyptian visa, and a free Sinai stamp will not work. However, this problem is easily solved on the spot. It is better to visit Cairo and the Pyramids with a ready-made excursion, since an independent trip will turn out to be more expensive and longer in time. In our opinion, it is worthwhile to go to Cairo and the Pyramids from Sharm el-Sheikh on your own only if you want to spend a few days there and get to know other places and sights of the city, but this is a completely different story. If you just want to see this wonder of the world, visit the capital and visit the main museum of the country, then there is simply no alternative to the excursion.

🚶 How to get there: Cairo and the Pyramids are about 500 kilometers from Sharm el-Sheikh, it's about 8-10 hours by bus or 1 hour by plane. As we said above, we see no point in going to Cairo from Sharma on our own just to briefly visit the museum and see the pyramids. You should go on your own only if you want to get to know Cairo better and visit more museums and attractions there, which will take several days. In other cases, just buy excursions and do not bother with an independent trip. You can buy ready-made excursions from hotel guides, in travel agencies on the street or on sites with reviews:, or

Sightseeing tours of Sharm el-Sheikh

The Old Town is one of the places to visit during the "reviews"

For every tourist who first arrives at this resort on a tourist voucher, hotel guides actively offer a sightseeing tour of the resort. Usually these are the cheapest excursions among all those offered, cost from 5 US dollars, and sometimes even free. In principle, we have nothing against such excursions, especially if you are a "beginner" in Egypt or tourism in general, but we do not recommend you to definitely agree to such a tour. And the thing is that sightseeing tours are not at all aimed at actually introducing you to the resort, but at easing your wallets a little, for which most of the trip will consist of visits to factories and branded stores of "special" tourist goods at "special" prices. Their prices are several times higher than can be found on the streets of the city, and excellent trade professionals work there, who will be able to sell even snow to Eskimos. But in fairness it should be said that during the tour you will be told and shown the main areas, taken to the Coptic Orthodox Church and mosque in the old town. So it's up to you to decide for yourself whether it's worth spending a day of your time and refusing an all-inclusive lunch for the sake of such an excursion.
