The Nabq area is located at the northern end of Sharm El Sheikh, and features numerous hotels, a beach, golf course, and snorkeling spots along Nabq Bay. One can do a quite decent run along the Coast Rd., which goes along the beach and in front of numerous hotels. It’s 5 km from the south end near the Spa of Nubian Island to the north end near the Barcel√≥ Tiran Sharm hotel. There are water views along a good part of the way. It’s less landscaped and shaded than the promenade along Naama Bay, but it’s longer!

NOTE: We’ve heard that some of the area hotels close off access to the Coast Rd. Please be aware that this might affect how much you can run in this area!!¬† [November 2022]

Add-Ons: One can also run on the main roads that run around the hotels (El Salam, El-Sheikh Zayad St.). Also, some of the resorts in Nabq are large enough to have their own self-contained pedestrian ways, particularly around the Nubian Island area.

Essentials

Went for this run from “Albatros Laguna Vista” unfortunately the resort “Rixos Premium Seagate” closed the costal road as you can see in the picture. They also have a fence until the water. This left me with piece of ~3km. 1 hour before sunset it was mostly in the shadow. In the morning however it was very much in the sun. I enjoyed that there was no cars any just few other people on the track.
