About
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Unique in the area, Sharks Bay Umbi Diving Village is a friendly, relaxing place that still maintains the feel of how Sharm used to be before the arrival of large scale tourism. The Diving Village has a well-equipped dive centre, its own private jetty and a fleet of five boats. There is also a seafood restaurant, beach bar and a full range of water sports. The accommodation ranges from budget View Huts and Beach Cabins to the individually styled Bedouin Village

Went on a diving safari with these guys, 14 dives over 4 days at the best dive sites Sinai has to offer - an amazing experience - highly recommended! Guides were very friendly and very professional. Will definitely come back.

The rooms are very basic and very tired a refurb is badly needed. The location is beautiful with only a few steps to the beach. As it is built on a hill there area lot of steps so not suitable for disabled or elderly.

Thanks for the comments - we are hoping to start refurbishing our rooms soon. And yes, the Bedouin Village rooms are not suitable for the physically disabled but our simple Beach Cabins would be fine for most people.
