Sharm el Sheikh is a city located on the southern tip of Sinai Peninsula, in South Sinai Governorate (Egypt), on the coastal strip along Red Sea. Its population is nearly 73,000 as of 2015. Sharm el Sheikh is the administrative hub of the South Sinai Governorate of Egypt, which includes the smaller coastal towns of Nuweiba and Dahab as well as the mountainous interior, Mount Sinai and St.Catherine's Monastery. It is today a holiday resort and significant centre for Egypt's tourism.
Sharm el-Sheikh (meaning "Bay of the Sheikh" in Arabic) is often called the "City of Peace", referring to the significant number of international peace conferences held there. The name is sometimes written as Sharm el-Sheik, Sharm al-Sheik or Sharm al-Sheikh in English. Modern Sharm el-Sheikh was established as the Israeli settlement of Ofira during 1967-1982 Israeli occupation. Among Israelis and Egyptians, the name of the city is usually shortened to "Sharm".
Sharm el Sheikh was formerly a port. Commercial shipping has been largely reduced as the result of the 1990s strict environmental laws. Until 1982, there was just a military port in Sharm el-Sheikh, on Marsa Bareka's northern part. The civilian port development started in mid-1980s, when Sharem-al-Maya Bay became city's main yacht and service port.
