Diving in Sinai
The Sinai peninsula is located in Egypt, in between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. This is a desert area, which is the perfect contrast with the flourishing life that the Red Sea provides in this area. Sinai diving means variety, species large and small, atmospheres for each type of diver and so much more. Sharm El Sheik, the southernmost city in Sinai, is a popular resort and diving destination. An hour north you reach Dahab, a quiet, colourful town which attracts scuba divers, freedivers and snorkelers alike.
The next stop towards the north of the peninsula is Nuweiba. Beach huts, relaxation and connecting with nature, is what attracts people here. The last stop on the journey north along the coast here is Taba, the small but bustling town which is located at the border of Egypt with Israel.
There are also numerous liveaboards which work in this area, and divers will never get bored or disappointed by the vibrant life of this region of the Egyptian Red Sea.
