The Middle East is unlike any region in the world, and on your next trip to Israel, you can easily visit other incredible countries. And while the beaches of Tel Aviv might be some of the best you’ll find just about anywhere, down in neighbouring Egypt, the Sinai beaches offer a quiet and peaceful getaway on the stunning Red Sea.
When you think of Egypt, you might think of ancient pyramids and the tombs of pharaohs, but the Sinai peninsula is a distinct part of the country which provides travelers with a different experience. In Sinai, you’ll find quiet and pristine beaches along the Red Sea, world-class diving sites, coral reefs, resorts, and several unique cities. Because of all it has to offer, it’s very common for travelers from Israel to cross the southern land border to visit Sinai.
