    The ancient column at Nuweiba

    This is supposedly an ancient column discovered on the beaches of Nuweiba during the time of the Israeli occupation and then moved and mounted at this place on the road leading out of Nuweiba to the south.

    It is suggested that it erected to mark the spot where Moses crossed the Red Sea.

    Relaxation at Tarabeen

    by swisssinai Written Apr 9, 2004

    The beach at Tarabeen

    Nuweiba has two bedouin settlements - Maizena to the south and Tarabeen to the north.

    Tarabeen is the prettier of the two and is located on a land sandy beach with date palm trees and sand dunes at one end.

    Lots of little cafes, shops, kiosks and small camps and budget hotels make this a great little place to hang out and relax.

    A safari to/in the Colored Canyon

    Me in the Colored Canyon

    First of all, you need a special licence to visit the Colored Canyon and only small groups - with a guide - are allowed in. This is due to some very heavy rainfall in October 2002 when the rocks in the canyon began to move.

    The drive from Sharm El Sheikh to Nuweiba was an easy 160 km drive over the highway. The next leg of the trip, from Nuweiba to the entrance of the canyon was a little more spectacular and can only be done by 4WD. It lasted about 45 min., went offroad, up and downhill, over rocks, etc.
    It was only the day after that my back felt broken ...

    The 1.5 hour hike through the canyon was of a stunning beauty. The rocks vary in colors from white over yellow, ochre, pink to almost red. Sometimes the 'path' was very difficult with steep climbs, we had to crawl under rocks, and on many occasions the bottom of the canyon was so narrow that we could not even put one foot next to the other.

    See more pictures in the travelogue.

    Beaches

    Oops - the previous must see activities may give a slightly 'overactive' impression about Sinai. The most important part of it is the beaches and just total chill-out. Lounging in the sun (or shade), snorkelling or diving - THE priorities for any time spent here. Total satlan -:)

    Ein Khudra Oasis

    by swisssinai Updated Feb 27, 2005
    The oasis after coming out of White Canyon

    Close to the White Canyon is a small natural oasis which has become home for a few Bedouin families.

    The perfect spot to relax over lunch after a long and exhausting hike through the canyons.

    you'll find an excellent theory that Moses Mountain ( Jebel Moussa ) is really in Saudi Arabia.

    Beaches II

    by leffe3 Written Jan 28, 2004

    The whole point of Sinai is to relax - so grab a shadey spot (or one nearby at least - you will need it even if you a world-champion sun-baker!) and do just that.
