A tourist destination since the early 1980s, Sharm el Sheikh lures travellers longing for a few days in the sun. The region is well known for its beaches, relaxation at all-inclusive resorts, and diving and snorkeling among the Red Sea coral reefs. In recent years, the city's dining and nightlife scenes have grown substantially, so if the goal for your holiday is to relax by day and party by night, you've come to the right place.

The main courses, highlighting mixed grill meats, vegetables, and stews, come in large portions to ensure you won't leave hungry.

The Iberotel Palace caters to divers, families, and couples seeking rest and rejuvenation. Hotel facilities include several pools, tennis courts, a billiard room, and a salon. Other services include complimentary boat transfers to a nearby coral reef for snorkeling and diving, as well as nightly entertainment.
