Sharm el sheikh is not just a destination for holidaymakers it also has outstandings conference facilities and has hosted many high-level international and summit conferences. Sharm el sheikh, the city of peace, is safe and secure in all times and it extends an invitation in the true spirit of egyptian, arab and bedouin hospitality to come and add to yoru collection of experiences and memoris in Egypt's jewel on the red sea coast.
At the southernmost point of the sinai peninsula the port and resort city of sharm el sheikh, one of the crown jewels of egyptian tourism, can be found embraced by the warm waters of the red sea. In a scant 50 years Sharm, as the city known familiarly to most egyptians and sun seekers, has grown from a sleepy fishing village occupied by a few bedouin souls to a vibrant resort city with a permanent population of over 35.000 and with millions of tourists arriving every year.
The city itself is subdivided into five homogeneous centres, namely Nabq, Ras Nasranyi Naama Bay, Umm Seed and Sharm El maya.
Together with Hay El nour, Hadaba, Rowaysat, Montazah and Shark's Bay, it forms a metropolitan area of 42 square kilometres, a figure that is somewhat deceptive because sharm hugs the coast and is seldom more than two kilometres wide. The city runs northwest from the point where the highway from Cairo ends at sharm el maya along the sharai el salem, or peace road, to nabq bay a distance of about 30 kilometres as the cvrow flies. The route is lined on both sides of the road with hotels, restaurant and entertainment and sports facilities, in short everything a vacationing visitor could possibly imagine. Almost all of this has been created in a little over 30 years.
