Naama Bay is the central part of Sharm el-Sheikh and one of the most visited areas in it. It is about a 10-minute drive from the entrance to the city and is characterized by a beautiful stretch of beach along which there are many high-quality hotels, as well as many entertainment and commercial areas. In the past it was on the site of the “Naama Bay Resort” which was established during the period of Israeli control in the Sinai Peninsula, and when control of the place was returned to Egypt, the place was returned in its entirety, which greatly facilitated its continued development.
In the Naama Bay area you will find a large pedestrian street that functions as a bazaar with plenty of shops, restaurants, malls, a boardwalk connecting the hotels on the beach, bars, entertainment and shopping centers and of course the beach. Among the well-known brands, you can also find there branches of McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Hard Rock Cafe, alongside local restaurants. The whole area comes alive in the evening and at night when it is lit up with colorful lights and becomes vibrant and full of life. Most of the streets in the complex are closed to vehicular traffic and are used by pedestrians only.
Accommodation in Naama Bay hotels is suitable for anyone who wants to stay close to the center of things and walk from the hotel to spend time. The entire area is full of hotels of all levels, from high-end resorts along the coast to more modest hotels in the heart of the area.
The hotels along the beach are actually resorts, most of them at the 4 or 5 star level, with a variety of amenities and facilities such as swimming pools, spas, restaurants, convenience stores and of course a private beach strip. Most of the beach stretch of Naama Bay is dedicated to the beaches of the hotels, including plenty of seating areas, sunbeds, bars and restaurants belonging to the hotels (some of which are also open to non-hotel guests), sports fields, ice cream stands, and more. Most of these hotels will also have entertainment activities in the evening and at night: a big screen projecting music or football games, performances by the entertainment team or by local artists and activities for children. These hotels provide excellent value for money and the easy access to the beach is simply worth it all.
In addition to the hotels next to the beach, in the Naama Bay area there is another variety of hotels that are not located near the beach but offer other additional advantages, such as an amazing view from the hotels located on the side of the mountain, a location next to places of entertainment and of course an affordable price. Most of the hotels in the area have travel agencies through which you can go on trips around, and Naama Bay is an excellent place to start trips from, because of its accessibility and the fact that it is not far from almost anywhere else in Sharm.
