The Geographical Location & The Climate Of Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh is located in the southernmost section of Sinai with the Aqaba Gulf to its East and the Suez Gulf to its east. The Red Sea occupies the southern section of the city while middle Sinai and the region of Saint Catharine are located to its north.

Sharm is located 488 kilometers to the South East of Cairo, 705 kilometers away from Alexandria, only 60 kilometers to the South of Saint Catharine, 100 kilometers to the South of Dahab, and 829 kilometers to the North East of Luxor.

The city is mainly divided into four sections; Sharm El Maya, where the port is situated and the old market area as well, Hadabet Om El Seed; a plateau which hosts many villas and accommodation.

This is beside the banks of the city and the post office, El Golf, a new section newly established where it is popular for having a wonderful golf course and plenty of deluxe luxurious resorts.

The most important section of Sham El Sheikh is certainly Naama Bay or Marina Sharm, the exotic heart of the city where all sorts of activities can be carried out. 15 years ago there was only one hotel in that area that was somehow isolated from the Sharm El Maya.

However, in less than five years international resorts were opened in Naama Bay and a huge market full of stores, discos, nightclubs, restaurants, and cafes.
