And it’s not just the pristine coastline that draws visitors from across the world to this Egyptian gem. The resort town has a fantastic combination of top-class accommodation and leisure facilities that guarantee smiles from all the family. The city’s airport handles flights to Sharm el-Sheikh from the world over – let ebookers find the best one for you today.
Sharm el-Sheikh’s location at the tip of the sultry Sinai Peninsula, with the warm Red Sea lapping its beautiful coast, makes it an ideal location for sun holidays throughout the year. Even in winter, the temperature rarely falls below 20°C, allowing visitors to spend Christmas with their toes in the sand on one of the resort town’s many beautiful beaches. January to March is generally the best time to find cheap tickets to Sharm el-Sheikh and the weather can be more pleasant than during the summer months, when temperatures can soar to 50°C.
With the Sinai Peninsula resort offering year-round sunshine and access to the ancient wonders of Egypt, it’s no wonder that more and more British holidaymakers are snapping up return flights to Sharm el-Sheikh from across the UK. British Airways has services from both London Heathrow and Gatwick airports, and if you’re based further north, Lufthansa offer connections from Edinburgh. Royal Jordanian and Pegasus Airlines also provide a one-stop service from Heathrow and London Stanstead.
Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport is located 11 miles northeast of the city, with a motorway connecting the busy transport hub with the hotels and resorts of the town centre. The easiest way to get to your hotel is to jump in one of the many taxis that wait outside the airport 24 hours a day. It’s best to agree the fare before you depart and the journey takes around 15 minutes. The other option is to take a shuttle bus from outside Terminal 1. These are minibuses that run on fixed routes past the most popular hotels and resorts – just tell the driver where you want to get off.
Guaranteed sunshine, warm waters and world-class water sports mean you’ll always get plenty of splash for your cash on your holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh. There are also plenty of other delights waiting to be discovered. Gorge on local delicacies in the excellent eateries in central Naama Bay, take a cruise around the magical islands along the Red Sea coast, or embark on a day trip to biblical Mount Sinai to enjoy a spine-tingling sunrise. With cheap flights to Sharm el-Sheikh available from a range of UK airports, an Egyptian adventure is now more affordable than ever.
