Sharm El Sheikh is THE beach resort destination for Egypt. It’s also a good destination for diving.

Due to the potential for political unrest in Egypt, it would be advisable for any traveler to buy Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) travel insurance. We do not have a vendor recommendation, but you should do some research to see what works best for your situation.
