Sharm El Sheikh is located at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, in Egypt, where the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba meet. It is oft called the "City of Peace" because it was the site for many peace summits. It was formerly a commercial fishing port but has morphed into the "green capital' of the Middle East. The Red Sea has militant environmental laws and prohibits the taking of marine wildlife.
All is not peachy there. In 2005, 64 people were killed by a suicide bomber in the "Old Market" section of the city. Israel has issued a terrorism warning because of the bombings.Surprisingly, tourism has not dropped. Sharm El Sheikh is considered the yachting and diving capital of the Red Sea.
Less than 3 hours away is Mount Sinai, the location where Moses was given the Ten Commandments. I have to think that's a must see if you consider property there. I mean, why not visit the original source for the legal system while you're there?
