A Must visit for divers and snorkelers
On the tip of southern Sinai can be found some of the world’s most spectacular underwater scenery. Crystalline water, rare and dazzling corals, and an incredible variety of brilliantly hued exotic fish have put Sharm el Sheikh on the map, and the must-do list for the divers and snorkelers of the world.
Those who wish to face inland, toward the historic and spiritual, will enjoy the ride through the stark and beautiful desert, to the foot of Mt. Sinai, where in the 6th century, St. Catherine’s Monastery was built, and over time became a repository for a priceless collection of early Christian art, architecture, and illuminated manuscripts.
