New al fresco dining option at Camel
If you are one of our regular guest at Camel, you’ve probably tried our Indian and Italian specialties at Tandoori and Pomodoro restaurants, both conveniently located next to our dive centre and hotel. We’re now offering a new perspective to our guests who would like to try our delicious authentic curries at Tandoori. Now you can choose to dine either in our candle-lit courtyard or in our dining area on the terrace overlooking the main promenade. The new seating option is perfect if you want to combine the best Indian restaurant in Sharm with a spot of people-watching and a lively night out. We look forward to welcoming you at our restaurants on your next visit to Sharm!

Camel’s clean up joins Guinness World Record attempt
This September set a milestone for Camel’s clean up tradition. As part of Project AWARE’s annual Dive against Debris campaign, we conducted four clean up events, recruiting thirty divers and collecting 37 kg of marine debris. On 28 September, we joined forced with the Global Underwater Awareness Association in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously conducting underwater clean ups around the world. The event - entitled “2nd World Clean Up Day” - was officially opened by Prince Albert II of Monaco. Camel was one of only three dive centers participating from Egypt. While our instructor Omar chose the dive sites of Tiran with Diveline group from Ipswich, UK, Cath took her first day divers to White Knight. As always, we were delighted to see that the diving areas furthest from the mainland were virtually debris-free and the usual suspects of fishing line and plastic buoy lines were found locally. Thankfully the number of plastic bags and bottles recovered remained in single figures but during a clean up earlier in the month, Sven and his team found over thirty snorkels!
