Sharm El Sheikh Overview

Sharm El Sheikh was established in 1968 by the Israelis when they used this area, during their occupation of Sinai, to be the residence of their soldiers and army officers. After the Egyptians won the war of the 6th of October 1973, they took control of this small town.

Afterwards, especially during the last 25 years, Sharm El Sheikh developed to be one of the most popular resorts in the world. Sharm was even named the city of peace by the UNESCO. This is because of the many peace negotiations that took place at the city.

Featured with its special location at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula at the Southernmost point, Sharm El Sheikh is located between the Aqaba Gulf to the East and the Suez Gulf to the West. Sharm El Sheikh is located around 500 kilometers to North West of Cairo, 780 kilometers to the South West of Hurghada, and more than 1400 kilometers away from Aswan.

Sharm El Sheikh now hosts more than 200 hotels and resorts from various levels and scales.
