Holiday Hotspot: Shark’s Bay

Shark's Bay

Shark’s Bay is a fantastic holiday hotspot as it is located on the Sinai Peninsula not far from other popular destinations such as Sharm el Sheikh and Na’ama Bay. This gives you the flexibility to stay in Shark’s Bay itself or explore other attractions close by.

The weather is very consistent in this part of the world, making a holiday with Cosmos a great way to escape the seasons in the UK. If sun, sand, sea and snorkelling are your cup of tea then Shark’s Bay will not disappoint.


The golden coastline stretching out from Shark’s Bay is dotted with numerous beaches, each catering to a different type of holidaymaker. Those who wish to lie on a sun lounger and catch up on their reading are well accommodated, as well as those keen to enjoy some of the watersports on offer.

These include water skiing and jet skiing, but many people prefer to go snorkelling or scuba diving, so that they can see the underwater world hidden beneath the waves. With the Ras Mohammed and Tiran coral reefs in the vicinity, this Red Sea resort is a world-class diving destination.

It does not matter whether you are a beginner to the discipline or have been diving previously on holiday; Shark’s Bay has the facilities to cope with all levels. Expect to see every colour of the rainbow represented in the local marine life.

Back on dry land, visitors can enjoy the luxury health spas on offer or a game of tennis, but one thing is for sure: you won’t be bored.

For most holidaymakers in Egypt a trip to the pyramids at Giza and accompanying Sphinx is a must, otherwise they do not feel as if they have been to this North African country steeped in history. A daytrip to see them is easily arranged from Shark’s Bay.

Where to stay and eat

There are plenty of hotels to choose from in Shark’s Bay that are both close to the beach and have the added luxury of a pool. When choosing one to stay at you will notice that many of the most recognisable names in holiday accommodation are represented.

The Hilton Shark’s Bay complex boasts a selection of pools, restaurants and bars, as well as the luxury guest rooms that have become associated with the brand. With tennis courts, a Jacuzzi and its own PADI-approved dive school, the Hilton has all of your needs covered.

Shark’s Bay also has its very own Savoy Hotel where guests have access to a private beach, five swimming pools and a selection of bars. The restaurant options are staggering with speciality seafood and Oriental cuisine on offer.

Alternatively there is the likes of the Savita Resort and Spa for those looking to be entertained by their hotel staff or the Sierra Hotel, which is great for families.

Why choose Shark’s Bay?

Shark’s Bay is a clean and friendly place to spend a holiday with fantastic diving opportunities, but slightly removed from bigger resorts such as Sharm el Sheikh. This will give you the best of both worlds as you will have more space to yourself, but can head into central Sharm for the nightlife if you wish.

With crystal clear water, almost guaranteed sunshine and world-class scuba diving sites, what is not to love about Shark’s Bay?
