Location and some history ...
Sharm El Sheikh is located on the southeast tip of the Sinai Peninsula, and is one of the Middle East's leading tourist destinations. Divers and adventurous tourists were the first to start visiting the area, which began during the Israeli occupation of Sinai. This growing tourism led to hotels and camping facilities being established in Naama Bay, and later the first small residential area was expanded, now known as Hadaba. In 1979, the Camp David peace agreement was signed with Israel, and in 1982, Egypt regained control of Sinai. During the 1980s, the first Egyptian and foreign young residents started the first generation of residents with their small investments in diving, hotels and shops. In the 90's, Sharm's significant development started for real, and has never stopped since. Now Sharm has grown to become a small city, with lots of facilities and a multicultural population that has chosen to settle here. Travel time from most European cities is between 4 and 5 hours, directly to Sharm El Sheikh International Airport.
The Suez Canal divides Asia from Africa, leaving Sharm El Sheikh in Asia, while the western side of the mainland is in Africa, only 3.5 hours by car from Sharm El Sheikh, or 55 minutes by plane.
