About Nabq Protectorate

Nabq Protectorate is one of the crown jewels of Sharm el-Sheikh. A place that inspires superlatives, Nabq is situated around 25 km from Sharm el-Sheikh and is a place of serene beauty. The protectorate spans across an area of 600 square km and has a bit of everything: limpid waters with great diving spots, a mangrove forest, and sand dunes.

The protectorate is also home to several species of birds and animals such as Nubian Ibex and gazelles. If you want a slice of unspoiled nature, then Nabq Protectorate has to be experienced.
