Best things to do in South Sinai and sightseeing in South Sinai
Ras-Mohammed-Nationalpark - South Sinai
It is also possible to visit the National Park by Jeep and just as fascinating. It was extraordinary to see an inland lake with mangroves in the middle of the desert; it was created by an earthquake not too long ago. At the road entrance is an inspiring sculpture of rocks. The guide told us they were laid out to depict the word "PEACE" in Hebrew and Arabic to mark the end of the war between the two countries.
Sharm el-Sheikh - South Sinai
Sharm-El-Sheikh has become the destination for British holiday-makers seeking the sun. It's full of hotels, clubs and bars along the shoreline but it is more than a hot Southend on Sea, it's full of life under-water too. Beautiful coral gardens fringe the coastline here, comprising tiny delicate marine invertebrates that have taken years to grow. Staghorne Coral is among the fastest-growing at an average of 15cms a year. So when you look at a coral reef, you really are looking at living history. The reef is teaming with fish so varied and colourful that it takes your breath away.
Dahab - South Sinai
Situated on the Eastern coast of the Sinai peninsula, this beautiful beach town overlooks the Gulf of Agaba and is renowned for its diving. It has been branded the chill-out zone of the Sinai, with its relaxed beach cafés, private beaches and self-contained holiday villages scattered about Dahab Bay. For those hungering for more adventure this is the perfect base to access the headland’s coral reef or to explore the rugged landscape on a jeep or camel safari.
Qesm Nwebaa - South Sinai
Although there was bountiful snorkelling near the beach, we went on a great boat trip to Ras Mohamed National Park. The snorkelling guide was brilliant; he gave every one a life vest and kept a close watch on all the swimmers whilst taking time to dive down and point out interesting fish and types of coral. He even took us to a shipwreck. The water was so clear it was easy to see the cargo laying in all its' glory on the seabed - I never thought that toilet basins would be so enchanting.
Taba - South Sinai
“The Gateway to Sinai” is ideal for divers and snorkellers, with its beautiful beaches, stunning reefs and crystal-clear waters. Situated just 75 km North of Nuweiba, tourism in the area has peaked recently since the building of the new International Airport. As well as the beautiful bays, stunning coastline and glorious reefs Taba is also situated close to other magnificent places. The Fjord lies just 15 km South of Taba and is a glorious location, brimming with natural wonder. It is a protected bay and is a place of true natural beauty with its exceptional coral reefs and delightful scenery. The incredible Coloured Canyon is only 50 km away and is a real sight to behold offering a breathtaking array of intense hues.
Sinai Peninsula - South Sinai
As is the Bedouin way there were cushions and blankets and tea and the utmost comfort to be had in this deserted remote area. All was quiet apart from the sound of the sea and the soft Arabic chatter of the men as they ate their meal of crabs caught in the cove with tomatoes and onions.
