we take our daughter to "old sharm" beaches as they are sandy and you can walk in as far as you feel comfortable. The only problem is that there is also alot of water sports in this area so you would also have to keep an eye out for the speed boats.

Any hotel that has its own beach and the beach is in Naama bay will do.Some hotels in Naama bay use beaches that are not in Naama bay(tropicana for one).

I'm staying at the Hilton Fayrouz in Naama bay in less than 2 weeks.

I've read that you can walk into the sea and snorkel in shallow water.

Will report back after I've been.

Good luck.

We were in the coral sea resort , sharm, nahb bay, a couple of years back, you could wade in the sea ankle deep for yards and yards, gentle shelving from all the hotels in that area. Last year we were in El Gouna, fabby beach set in its own island, Zeytona, reached by bridge/ boat, and this again was a gentle shelving beach. There was another beach in El Gouna, Mangroovy beach, cant comment on this as was only there for the beach parties in the evening, and they were great!

Mutley...no worries whatsoever about the Hilton's beach..it is fabulous!

Enjoy!

I was under the impression the Three Corners' allocated beach was Maya Maya Beach opposite Terrazina. If I'm wrong on the latter I'm sure I shal be corrected!
