Ras Um Sid, Sharm El Sheikh

#5 of 17 in Beaches in Egypt
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
What it lacks in sand, Ras Um Sid more than makes up for in seclusion. The rugged rocky cliffs that ring around the bay separate the coastal area from all developments beyond and ensure plenty of privacy. Offshore, you'll find an abundance of marine life, including extensive coral formations--bring your snorkeling or diving gear, or rent from one of the onsite shacks.
