El Fanar is at the southern part of Sharm el Sheikh. A nice beach with lovely views of the Red Sea, it is very nice for relaxing and enjoying the views. I enjoyed chilling out here during my recent trip to Sharm. Recommended!

Went to El Fanar beach October 2015, reef crystal clear and amazing fish right off jetty, food and drink ok and reasonably priced, beautiful sunsets worth a visit £5 to get in including towels and a bottle of water.

I've visited El Fanar on a couple of occasions. Both time it was to visit the restaurant that is situated there. What a beautiful location overlooking the Red Sea. This ideal for a romantic meal for 2.
