The Sinai Peninsula is a vast area of unspoiled beauty.  The excellent quality of the water, the magnificent underwater world and the impressing panorama of the Sinai Mountains, all promise an unforgettable experience.  Sharm El Sheikh is fast becoming the main attraction of this area.  A costal resort where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and sunshine, Sharm El Sheikh offers the vacationer a full complement of activities, whether water sports (water-skiing, windsurfing, diving, snorkeling), golf, tennis, horseback-riding or desert safaris.
If relaxation is what you’re looking for, there is no better place to simply kick back and enjoy the sun.  Places like the Hard Rock Café, discos, cozy local oriental Cafes and fish restaurants guarantee that once the sun has set, your nights are also filled with fun and entertainment.  Don’t miss a night out in Naima Bay, one of the favorite gathering points for locals and tourists, snuggled in the heart of Sharm El Sheikh.



  Ras Mohamed

Ras Mohamed National Park occupies one of the world's most extraordinary settings.  Located at the  southernmost tip of the Sinai, looking out at some of the most gloriously rich coral reefs known to mankind, the Ras Mohammed Peninsula merges the  shallow Gulf of Suez with the deep intercontinental chasm of the Gulf of Aqaba.


  Mount Moses & Sainte Catherine's Monastery


(or Musa) referred to as Jebel Musa, Gebel Mousa, Mount Moses or the Mountain of Moses (all of which basically means the same thing) is considered to be that biblical peak. This peak has religious significance to Islam as the place where Mohammed's horse, Boraq, ascended to heaven. The 7,497 foot mountain has 3,750 steps hewn out of stone by monks of St. Catherine's Monastery, which is located just to the North.
The peak is accessible by the steps, or by a gentler path east of the monastery. Both lead to an amphitheater known as the "Seven Elders of Israel". From there, one must ascend the remaining 750 steps to reach the summit where the Chapel of the Holy Trinity was built in 1934 (on the location of the original chapel built in 363 and rebuilt by Justinian in 530) and affords a truly breathtaking view. It is recommended that you take the steps down, as they will lead you past the fountain of Moses, a small chapel of the Virgin, and two arches, the Gate of St. Stephen and the Gate of the Law

As for the The 6th-century St. Catherine's Monastery, it is built on the supposed site of Moses' burning bush, houses a fascinating collection of early Christian manuscripts, icons and relics. Several monks still live in the monastery. (Pope John Paul II paid a visit there in 2000.) St. Catherine's has a rich history indeed. So rich that it is a sparkling example of an undiscovered Jewel of travel.

  The Colored Canyon


The Colored Canyon is a must-see when you are in Sinai. It is where the water has gorged a path over thousands of years into the rock opening up all different colored layers.
 The Colored Canyon presents one of the most magnificent rock formations in the world. The rock formations are an incomparable attraction: they vary from sandstone to limestone, granite and veins of basalt dominate the scenery through the entire hike.
 The road to the Colored Canyon is well paved, and snakes nicely through magnificent mountains and bold, rugged rock-formations of awe-inspiring beauty.
