Camel-trekking: If you have time for an overnight trip, head to Coloured Canyon on camel-back. The Sinai region's rugged mountains and stunning sunsets, curious wildlife are just the beginning of the adventure.
Scuba diving: This area is also extremely popular for diving. For shipwrecks, the SS Thistlegorm is a great ship to explore. In the summer it is also too crowded with tourist divers, so it's best explored early in the day or in the off-season.
