Quad biking in the desert - such fun...... completely organised.

You get to stop off at various points, drink Bedouin tea with the local Bedouin tribe, take a camel ride if you fancy it - about 2 hours with collection and return from your hotel.

Glass bottom Boat Trip about an hour going to a couple of different points in the sea to float over the coral - and watch the wonderful assortment of very colourful fish..... who knows what else you might see !

Star Gazing in the Desert.

Arabian Horse Riding in the desert.

To start the ball rolling ;)

Sinai has heaps to offer away from the shores... the question is if you have enough time? The mountains and the desert are full of interesting and beautiful places. The only comprehensive information about the interior I know of is here:


It is an information portal (not trying to sell you stuff) although you will find operators listed as well. You could organise a programme once you're here, but shop around what they offer and for how much.

I would suggest a couple of days in St Catherine, and 2-3 days in the desert. My favourites include the Nawamis site, Jebel Makharoom, White Canyon and Ain Hudra.

If you read the Top Questions on the right of the forum, there is one called " What trips are available?" which gives a list of the trips available from Sharm and some info about each one.
