This area is ideal for sun lovers with its lovely weather and superb sandy beaches, and the clear waters are perfect for swimming and windsurfing as well as snorkelling and diving. The seabed close to the coast is a giant coral aquarium with lots of colourful inhabitants. Away from the coast, the warmth and hospitality of the local people, the Bedouins, will enable you to experience another quieter side of the area
Nearly 365 days of sunshine each year in the Sinai (there is the occasional cloud but not often) makes this an all year round destination. Dahab was voted best winter sun destination in a BBC programme a couple of years ago.
The international airport in Sharm el Sheikh offers easy access to this area
