Review of El Fanar

El Fanar
Reviewed September 9, 2018

Private Beach with Resturant ,showers and toilets.Beach also has Massage area.Food and drinks in Resturant very good and not to pricy.We paid to get on the beach and recieved a bottle of water each and a towel each this is great had you dont have to carty these thinhs with you when travelling to the beach..There is a small charge for the use of the beach but thats what keeps this Beach so relaxing and quiet.The snorkling and diving is a must even for the non swimmer what you can see and experiance while floating in the water is unforgetable..This is not a sandy Beach so not really suitable for young children who like to play on the sand but if you are looking for a place to just chill out and enjoy a nice meal and a few drinks then El Fanar is the Beach for you.We return here year after year and wr are looking forward to visiting again 2019.

PROS: stunning views, amazing snorkeling/SCUBA, solid dock

CONS: slow food service, not the cleanest surroundings, entry fee

Best place in Sharm to enjoy the Red Sea from the shore or under the water’s surface.

Dive master for Elite Divers suggested a night dive and we went down to El Fanar. Easy entry and a nice easy night dive with a good variety of coral and sea life.

El Fanar beach is truly a jewel of the Red Sea.
There is a small fee to access the beach at El Fanar this included a towel and was extremely good value as the beach was absolutely stunning.
There was plenty of loungers with parasols while we were there, and the beach areas were not busy at all. The whole area is very clean and there is a bar, restaurant and toilets available.
The beach sits on a small headland which provides a nice breeze which keeps the temperature in the shade warm, but comfortable.
The beach area had plenty of steps into the water which was warm and shallow enough to sit in, but deep enough to snorkel over the top of the coral reef. There was also a jetty allowing access to snorkel along the drop off at the edge of the coral reef, here there was a huge amount of marine life and a a large variety of corals.
I suggest that El Fanar beach is a 'must see' for anyone who is visiting the Sharm El Sheikh area.
