Sharm el Sheikh Crime

Sharm el Sheikh was the scene of Egypt’s worst ever terrorist attack in 2005. Since the attack, security in the city has been extremely high and there’s a subtle but strong police presence there. As such, levels of crime are very low making it a very safe city to visit. As with any overseas trip, common sense will ensure you have an incident free holiday. Keep valuables locked in a safe, don’t venture into quiet, dark areas alone after dark, and watch your valuables when on the beach.
