The beach here reposes under a long, winding wall of rock, jutting out like a promontory into the azure sea. The sea itself, with it’s large islands, seams perfectly with the cloudless sky to form a wall of solid blue that is best appreciated from the yachts and ferries of the port down-coast, or right on the beach. Take a camel ride or jeep up to nearby Mount Sinai to see where Moses took his legendary exodus with the Ten Commandments, or the oldest church and Christian library in the world, St Catherine’s, in the middle of the inclement canyons.
