Taxi!

You will see taxis everywhere in Sharm, you don't usually even have to ask for one. Often, if you are by a road or walking towards a road people will ask you if you want a taxi.

If you are traveling from your hotel - stand outside it by the road and hold your hand out. A taxi will pull over. Make sure it a is a blue and white taxi though, these are the ones that are insured. When entering a taxi, there is a disc on the front winder (like a tax disc) on this will tell you how much you are supposed to pay.

Always negociate a price before you get in the taxi and if possible have the correct change or exchange money before you set off in the car. I was told by the rep at the hotel that some will say that they have no change and drive off.

Make sure that when you go to Naama Bay that you ask to be dropped off by Panorama, this is the main strip and where you want to be. The first time i went to Naama Bay by taxi the driver dropped us off by a back enterance and we got so much hassle, it was a bit daunting!

Be warned, taxis drive really fast and they don't indicate, or seem to look in their mirrors! It's such a relief when you have arrived to destination! Hehe.

From Dreams Beach Resort to Naama Bay i paid approximately 25 Egyptian pounds.
