Rugged and starkly beautiful, for centuries the Sinai Peninsula has captured imagination of all who travelled through it. Its strategic position as a crossroads for empires from ancient times to the current era has made it the scene of many battles and a place where conquerors and exiles meet. The region’s religious significance for the Abrahamic faiths has made it the object of devotion for centuries, attracting pilgrims who seek to follow in the footsteps of prophets who trekked its pathways and encountered the divine.
As a springboard to the Red Sea’s underwater wonders, Sinai’s seaside resorts serve up sun-drenched holiday fun.
However, once you head away from the coastal buzz, Sinai’s true soul can be found. Here the Bedouin continue to preserve their traditions amid the red-tinged, rugged peaks and endless sand. On a star-studded night, surrounded by the monstrous silhouettes of mountains, you’ll realize why Sinai continues to cast a spell over all who visit.
