Toll roads are not common in and around Sharm el Sheikh. However, always keep some Egyptian pounds handy for any unforeseen expenses.

Must-Visit Attractions and Distances

  1. Naama Bay: Just a 15-minute drive from the airport, this is Sharm's heart. Famous for its cafes, beaches, and vibrant nightlife.

  2. Ras Muhammad National Park: A 38 km drive (around 40 minutes) will lead you to this protected marine reserve, a paradise for snorkelers and divers.

  3. St. Catherine's Monastery: Located approximately 220 km away (around a 2.5-hour drive), this UNESCO World Heritage site nestled at the foot of Mount Sinai is a spiritual journey through history.

  4. Nabq Protectorate: A mere 25-minute drive north will take you to this coastal reserve, home to diverse flora and fauna.

In Conclusion

With the flexibility that comes from hiring a car through RhinoCarHire, Sharm el Sheikh’s secrets become yours to uncover at your own pace. Sharm el Sheik is a rapidly expanding holiday resort based on the beautiful beaches and unspoilt coral reefs of the Red Sea. Having a hire car is the only way to get around this part of the world conveniently and we can make sure that you have air conditioning to combat the fierce heat. It also saves you having to haggle over the fares (which can be expensive) with taxi drivers. In fact, if you want to make your trip really enjoyable you should drive to Sharm el Sheik from Cairo along the west coast. A longer route is to come from Eilat in Israel via Dahab and Nuweiba along the east coast. This will take you a day, but it is a stunning scenic drive and you can enjoy Rhino’s unlimited mileage offer.
