With many airlines offering cheap flights to Sharm el-Sheikh, why not book yourself a ticket there to escape the last days of winter? This former port is now famous for its stunning underwater scenery and warm, crystal clear waters, making it a popular destination for scuba divers.

See

Sharm el-Maya – The original old town of Sharm rests in a picturesque natural harbour about 15 minutes away from the more popular Na’ama Bay.

The market here also offers lower prices than many of the shops at the more popular areas of Sharm el-Sheikh. 

Eat
