Sharm El Sheikh Nightlife
The Egyptian Riviera, Sharm El Sheikh’s Naama Bay is a crescent shaped cluster of international hotels, nightclubs, cafes and casinos. As the sun sets and the air cools down, Sharm lights up the night as the beat goes on.
The club scene in Sharm is as diverse as in any large urban city. Many of the clubs offer different levels for different experiences.
TIP: Always ask to see the drink menu as cocktails are expensive and taxed by the amount of alcohol poured..
Resident DJs blasting house music from Club Pascha during the Ministry of Sound every weekend. Little Buddha, a very upscale all inclusive restaurant, turns into a chic club at 1130pm nightly playing an international variety of music from old school R&B to the most contemporary electronic mixed sounds. Space Sharm – with 2 outdoor and 1 indoor space – all with views overlooking the Red Sea as the EDM music pulses though the venue.
Smoking Shisha or water pipe is a big thing in Egypt, having a smoke and people watching. Cafe Tche Tche is the perfect place to do this. You can chose from a variety of tobacco flavors for your pipe like apple or mixed fruit but no alcohol is served here. Fruit juices, soft drinks and a selection of teas and coffee are available. The rooftop lounge at The Camel Bar has a chill vibe with couches for late night conversations, cocktails, amazing views and a laid back atmosphere.
Put on your poker face and let Lady Luck guide you to one of the many casinos located in the Sharm el-Sheikh area. The Sinai Casino is very popular with international visitors with a wide variety of the latest slots, video poker, table games and a card room that has Texas Hold-em and 5-card.
Tip: Make sure you have your passport with you if you want to gamble.
Like to dive? Many of the dive shops offer night diving in the Gardens section of the National Park of Ras Mohamed located a few minutes from Naama Bay. With a sandy ledge on a gentle slope, look for flashlight fish, moray eels, napoleons, blue spotted stingrays and lion fish.
Not into the club scene? Book an evening of stargazing with a Bedouin guide to desert. Pick a 4 wheel buggy, bus or camel for transport. After a filling dinner and some belly dancing, lay back on the carpeted dunes and gaze up at the stars dreaming of Arabian Nights.
