Tiran Island View
Sinai peninsula

Diving boats return back to the harbour passing the Island of Tiran in the distance. Tiran Island and its smaller neighbor Sanafir Island officially belong to Saudi Arabia but are being used by Egypt. The island is located at the entrance to the Straits of Tiran, an important sea passage to Israel and Jordan, and is therefore of strategic significance to this area. Only some Egyptian military personnel and members of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) are allowed on the island. Apparently, the island's beaches are heavily mined so the supplies to the military camps arrive by helicopter twice a week.

Tiran is absolutely off limits for any other visitor, also scuba diving on the beautiful fringing reefs around the island is strictly prohibited.

More About Egypt

Egypt ; Arabic: مصر‎, Miṣr or Máṣr) is a country mainly in North Africa, with the Sinai Peninsula forming a land bridge in Western Asia. Covering an area of about 1,010,000 square kilometers (390,000 sq mi), Egypt borders the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west.Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East. The great majority of its estimated 82 million live near the banks of the Nile River, in an area of about 40,000 square kilometers (15,000 sq mi), where the only arable agricultural land is found. The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx. The southern city of Luxor contains numerous ancient artifacts, such as the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. Egypt is widely regarded as an important political and cultural nation of the Middle East.
