The Sinai Peninsula is an area that is steeped in history. The Mediterranean Sea lies to the north, the Red Sea is to the south, and it is Asia proper, rather than Africa, like the rest of Egypt.
After your Egypt flight, soak up the “ancientness” that seeps out of every grain of sand. It’s where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments from God and where gold was discovered during the days of the Pharaohs.
The area has long been a holy land in Christianity, Islam and Judaism as prophets, saints and pilgrims crossed the desert throughout the millennia to reach Mount Sinai and St Catherine’s Monastery. Forts left over from the Crusades now provide shade for Bedouin camps.
For those more interested in present times, a flight to Egypt provides a chance for divers and snorkellers to explore the beautiful coral reefs and abundant marine life of the Red Sea.
Take a boat trip to get the best scuba diving. From Sharm el Sheikh, the nearest dive sites go from the Straits of Tiran to the marine park of Ras Mohammed. If you are learning, this is one of the best places in the world to get qualified.
Get an underwater camera to remind you of the variety of marine life. As well as colourful fish and coral you could see jack, snapper and barracuda.
Visit the range of peaks known as Mount Sinai. This is where Moses is thought to have received the Ten Commandments from God before the Red Sea parted and he and his tribe escaped from the Egyptians. The site of the burning bush famous from biblical times is nearby in St Catherine’s Monastery.
