It depends if you want to be in the hussle and bustle of Naama Bay, a busy shopping area that a lot of people say they dont enjoy, personally, I think its a great way of having a laugh with the locals there.

Or you can look for a hotel in the sharks bay/whight knight bay, this is on the doorstep to soho square, a far more laid back shopping area with bars and restaurants everywhere. The hotels here within walking distance are Savoy, Island View (I think that is its new name, was Sunrise), Concorde El Salam and Hilton Sharks Bay. These 4 all have private beaches with snorkelling.

The main activities in Sharm arent really accessible without booking a trip with a tour company or your rep. In which a free pick up and drop off would be arranged, so you wont need to worry about getting around. Same for going off shopping, most hotels offer a shuttle bus down into areas such as old town or naama bay.

Im sure others will have some more info as I am not yet a seasoned Sharm expert!!

Hi, it does not cost anything to get on a private beach.

The last message you got is very helpful, and Sharks Bay is a lovely place.

3dr time for us at the "Island View" and i can really recommend it, try and read the reviews.

"Soho Square" right outside the hotel which is so nice, lots of shops, places to sit and watch the world go by..... singers...... ice skating ring.... british pub!!

and you can get a taxi to Nama Bay for some "Fun"... (not to my liking getting to old!!)

40 days and counting!
