Looking for some sun this fall? Then book a trip to Sharm El-Sheikh, the Egyptian city on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula. Offering both land-based activities as well as sea, it's a great destination both for relaxation and adventure.

With its protected coral ecosystems and abundant marine life, Sharm offers world-class diving opportunities. Jackson Reef located in the Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba is a great place for experienced divers, with plenty more options for those less experienced such as the Jolanda Reed site in the Ras Mohammed Marine Park area. Here you will be met with a kaleidoscope of fish and coral life. If it's snorkeling that you are interested in, then there are lots of options too: check out the Ras Um Sid Beach area.

For beach life, with its white sand and palm trees, Naama Bay is often acknowledged as one of the best beaches in Egypt. Judge for yourself and when you need a break from the sand, head to one of the many cafes and restaurants or take a walk along the pedestrian only promenade.

Looking for dinner ideas? Then why not combine quad biking through the desert, a camel ride and a taste of Bedouin culture? Book a trip on the Desert Sunset Quad Biking trip and ride through the desert as the sun goes down to a traditional Bedouin camp, enjoy some traditional tea, a BBQ feast and a folkloric show. Other experiences are also available with the Bedouin Dinner in the Desert Experience.
