South Sinai towns are famous for hiking, diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, kitesurfing, para-sailing, boating, and canoeing. However, like many of Egypt's touristic sites, the number of visitors has fallen after several years of political upheaval.

Taken at Dawn
I have no doubt that the beaches are very quiet but at least one of the photos of Sharm was taken at dawn judging by the shadows. You’re not likely to have anyone about at 6.45 AM. There is no need to take fake shots.

What a shame!
Such a beautiful part of the world, under-utilized, under-developed, and poorly managed. What Egypt needs to understand is that there are hundreds if not thousands of beautiful beaches around the world for tourists to choose from. Egypt needs to develop a "unique experience" for tourists to choose Sinai. sun, sand, and sea alone doesn't cut it anymore; sophisticated tourists need more. Perhaps a qualified international tourism developer could fully utilize and better manage this rough diamond!
