"The Coloured Canyon - the road in" Top 5 Page for this destination Nuweiba` Things to Do Tip by leffe3

Nuweiba` Things to Do: 59 reviews and 115 photos

In addition to St Catherines, the other main attraction to Nuweiba away from the beaches is the Coloured Canyon.

The Canyon is about 15kms north of Nuweiba: the road is tarmacked until the Ain el-Furtaga oasis, then this track (photo) takes you to the beginning of the canyon itself.

I may be getting boring about highlighting the desolate landscape, but its overwhelming. This leads to the coloured canyon - and on the back of a pick-up with little suspension, you notice every bump.
