Sharm El Sheikh Map
Sharm has a population of about 35,000 people. Official language is Arabic, but like in any tourist-spot, many other languages are spoken (after a fashion).
In 2010 Sharm el-Sheikh lost some of its reputation as a save Scuba diving paradise because of several shark attacks on tourists.
Sharm El-Sheikh has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Egypt, because of its natural resources, a year-round favorable climate, long stretches of natural beaches, and stunning underwater sceneries in warm waters.
Visitors can expect a modern nightlife that happens in and around restaurants, casinos, discos, and nightclubs. Sharm offers all the amenities of a tourist center including golf courses, shopping malls, health facilities, and a nearby national park.
