Maps and Orientation of the City
Na'ama Bay lies amidst the heart of the action in Sharm el Sheikh and is often brimming with pedestrians heading to the beachfront. A notable coastal promenade lies in this area and is lined with many large hotels, eateries and shopping centres. Away from this extremely busy strip, the regions become quieter, with the resorts located on the northern side of Na'ama Bay offering a more peaceful location.
Around 6 km / 4 miles to the west of Na'ama Bay you will find the Sharm al-Maya area of Sharm el Sheikh, which is centred around a popular local market. The harbour stands to the south-west, while the Hadaba district is situated on the top of the cliff and contains a number of fairly middle of the road resorts.
