A triangular thumb wedged into the north end of the Red Sea, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula offers rugged and dramatic terrain. The endless shifting dunes of the desert and the craggy granite peaks, along with miles of gorgeous beaches, coral reefs and shelves, give the Sinai Peninsula enormous diversity. Sinai is ancient and storied, a land of great beauty. Known to much of the world through its role in the Bible, it is the setting for the book of Exodus.
Located at the tip of Sinai, Sharm El Sheikh is now one of the world’s most accessible resort destinations for snorkelling and scuba diving. In 1989, the Ras Mohammed National Park was established, both on shore and at sea, to preserve the area’s unique ecosystems. Ninety metres (295 feet) of vertical reefs are home to an astonishingly abundant marine world, much of it unique to these waters, while the land-based park teems with exotic birds. Jeep safaris let you experience the excitement of the majestic mountains.
