Travel to Sharm El Sheikh – Within Egypt

Not everyone wants to take a plane though, particularly if the distance is relatively short. This is why ferry boat rides are popular for this high diving resort community. International Fast Ferries is the company to contact if you want transportation to or from Hurghada or anywhere on the mainland Red Sea Coast. The only disadvantage here is that ferryboat rides are rather bumpy and may also be canceled at short notice.

Another way to travel around Sharm El Sheikh is by car or boat. Going down the Eastern Coast from Eilat can access Sharm el-Sheikh by Nuweiba and Dahab, or even by going down the Western Coast from Cairo.

Buses drive daily and will take you from Cairo to Sharm El Sheikh in about six hours. At least you get some colorful scenery during the weight. Taxi rides don’t offer much pleasant scenery and can be pricey at times.
