From Sharm al Sheikh to Taba, Explore the Sinai Peninsula
When visiting Sinai make sure to take in everything from the blowing sands of the desert to the bountiful underwater world and everything in between. This adventure is best taken in a two week stride to see all the peninsula has to offer.
Enter at the gateway to Sinai in Sharm El Sheikh and begin a fascinating journey on a bus ride to Dahab. Enjoy Sinai’s natural structures like the Coloured Canyon and Ras Abu Galum Protectorate.

Take a step off the bus onto to a camel or jeep safari.
Every diver needs to visit the Ras Mohammed National Park to be awed by some of the world’s most scintillating reefs.

Thistlegorm, a World War II era British supply ship filled with sunken military treasure is a unique treat for experienced divers.
Its full cargo and remoteness make it one of the more famous reefs to dive.
For those preferring to keep two feet firmly placed on the ground, a hike up St. Katherine Protectorate should do. St. Katherine’s Monastery comes complete with a burning bush, the renowned Bysantine church and a spectacular icon collection.

Bedouin guides lead the way through the protectorate on foot. Top it all off with a steady hike up Mt. Sinai in the dark to catch the beautiful sunrise in the morning.
After all the hiking, hitting the beach is a perfect way to relax. Sinai has many beaches to spread out a towel and bury some toes in the sand. Rest in any number of the camps along the coast stretching from Nuweiba to Taba.
