The sun sets behind the mountains of Naama bay. The colours can be quite spectacular!
Naama bay is fairly small but it can get crowded. It is nice to take a stoll through the main area inthe evening. The shops and stalls stay open late sop there is plenty of time for shopping in the evening rather than during the day.
This crack in the earth was made by an earthquake in the 1960’s
There are basically two entrances to the park this is the new one that was built in the 1980’s. It really stands out and is quite something.
Ras Mohammed National Park is a narrow, dramatically arid peninsula at the very southernmost tip of the Sinai, it was declared a National Park in 1983
You can see mangrove forests in the Ras Mohammed National Park. There are very few places in the world where you will be able to see these plants growing in salt water.
Apparently the lake has youth giving properties - the lake of eternal youth?? i only went in as far as my ankles so maybe I will just have young feet! Besides all that the water was a beautiful turqoise standing out against the sand of the desert.
We also booked this through Sun 'n Fun (see my general tip), It was $35 each for about 2 hours. Make sure to wear long pants and you can get a scarf on the trip to cover your face from the sand. If you are a biker you may find you don't have the ability to really 'ride' but it is fun anyway.
Glass Bottomed Boat
The Discovery Glass bottomed boat costs LE55 per person and leaves from the pier in front of the Sun 'n Fun at the Hilton fayrouz hotel. The bost goes around the bay for about an hour or so and its a great way for people who don't dive and snorkel to see what is down there. For me personally i would rather be IN the water but we went so our daughter could see all the fishies.
Well you can't go to Egypt and not at least try a shisha. Prices vary from LE6 to LE12 depending on where you are. We liked the apple one best. It is very nice to sit down with a drink after dinner and a shisha to wind down after a long day of sightseeing. This particular place was on the beach in Naama bay, basically just cushions on the ground, very relaxing place to come after dinner
