Naama Bay Sharm information, tours, prices and online booking
Naama Bay Sharm (or Na’ama Bay) lies midway between Sharm Airport and Old City. In fact, it is nearly 10 minutes driving from both. Microbuses can take you from downtown there. If you want to reach Naama Bay from Airport, you will have to take a cab. For Nightlife & Cafes, Naama Bay offers several clubs. The Pacha, Little Buddha and Hard Rock Café. (Yes, the latter is one of those chain one.). In fact, there are countless bars and the pedestrian walkways. They offer many coffee houses where you may also enjoy a shisha along with some people watching.
Naama Bay Sharm is basically a formation of a large number of hotels and spas. In fact, they share the same beach line. Most famous hotels there are Na’ama Bay Hotel, Helnan and Cataract Hotel. Like any Sharm El Sheikh area, snorkeling and diving are a main pull for tourists. To note is that some hotels have cleared the coral reef from their section of beach for tourists to use the water. However, there are many boat trips and diving safaris. It is where you will be taken out to coral reef filled with exceptionally colorful fish.

More information about Naama Bay Sharm:
Naama Bay Sharm has very forceful sellers and caution should taken by the naïve tourist who accepts a “free gift”. In fact, nothing in Egypt is free or falls for the “come and sign my guest book” in a shop, only to be locked in. When shopping, it is best not to speak to any sellers who engage you unless you are sure that you are going to buy something. This allows you some degree of hassle free walking (as they do not know what language you speak). Opening hours are variable, but most shops are open in the early to late afternoon and in the evening. If you are looking for a reprieve from the hassle and haggling, there’s a Carrefour Express supermarket with fixed prices. Coming from the bay it’s hidden behind one of the Malls, at Golden Pyramid Mall – on Peace Road.
The selection is limited, but all the staples are available without hassle. You just have to make it through the crowds of vendor touts to get there. Walking Naama Sharm Bay indeed is amusing, especially at night. It is where lights of Bedouin-style and modern restaurants, café Shops, and other ‘Bazaars’ glitter. If you want to go economic, you can dine at KFC, Pizza Hut or McDonalds. Otherwise, you will enjoy some fresh seafood, or Egyptian typical Kebab, but for a relatively higher price. There is also a TGI, Little Buddha and Hard Rock Café.
