Naama Bay (Na'ama Bay)
Sharm el Sheikh‘sNa’ama Bay area is set back slightly from the rest of this area of coastline, meaning its gleaming waters tend to be even more tranquil than elsewhere. It’s long arc of sun-bleached sand faces roughly southeast, and is surrounded by some of the area’s best hotels, restaurants, and nightlife.
One of the main tourist spots in the region, Na’ama Bay is popular with package tours. Much of the beach is divided into hotel “owned” sections, although as long as you don’t use their sunbeds or parasols you shouldn’t be troubled. There are also a couple of sections of “public sand”, which require a small entrance fee to enter.
The excellent year-round weather at Na’ama Bay makes it highly attractive for those from cooler climes looking to soak up some sun. But the gently-shelving beach also makes a variety of water sports possible. Snorkelling and scuba diving are both widely advertised. Coral reefs stretch for several miles north of the bay, and can be reached after a short boat ride. Independent scuba diving is not permitted however – you’ll need to make use of a guide, which limits you to the packages on offer by the variety of dive shops in operation along the beach’s length.
