Historical Overview at a glance
In general, Sinai Peninsula has been plagued by conflicts, most recently between 1967 and 1982, when it was occupied by Israel. Sharm El Sheikh specifically has been captured in the 1967 war, but to its benefit, as Israelis worked on developing its main port, as well as building several hotels along its extended coastline. “Naama Bay”, was given its name by Israelis, to best describe its nature, as “Naama” translates to “Pleasant’ in Hebrew and Arabic too. Camp David’s treaty came as a turning point in Egyptian history, as occupied areas were returned to Egypt, and ever since, Sharm El Sheikh has been remarkably booming, to set itself as tourists’ favorite holiday destination.
