Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt

Naama Bay Promenade & More

Marc Ryckaert

The signature run in Sharm El-Sheikh is the seafront promenade along Naama Bay. The palm-lined path, actually called Pedestrians Road, runs along the crescent-shaped beach, with great views of the Red Sea. The distance is 1.3 km. It’s lit at night.

For a longer run, one can continue north along the Coast Road (it’s inland, no water views) for 1.5 km, to the road that runs in front of the Park Regency Sharm El Sheikh Resort. This is another pleasant ~1 km waterfront promenade.

Add-On — South of Naama Bay. Some of the streets south of Naama Bay are okay for running . One can do a nice little 3 km loop along Al Sutan Quabos-Mashaba road and Halomy Rd., which run on either side of the King Tut Museum. Both these roads have decent sidewalks and run for 1.3 km between the water and El Salam Rd., climbing 40m!

  • Promenade along Naama Bay is 1.3 km. Longer run is up to 4 km (2.5 miles) one-way, with more south of Naama Bay
  • Flat, except for a ~30m hill on section between the two coastal roads
