El Fanar, Sharm El Sheikh

Relax and unwind by the sea at El Fanar, a beach overlooked by an old lighthouse. Backed by rugged cliff faces, the coastline features a sandy beach sitting between the rocks and the calm sea. Head out for a paddle in the shallower waters, or grab your snorkeling or diving gear and explore the abundant coral farther offshore, where manta rays are regularly sighted. A restaurant, small spa, and play area offer a little artificial entertainment to go with the natural charm of the place. Make El Fanar part of your personalized Sharm El Sheikh itinerary using our Sharm El Sheikh trip planner.
