Sinai is a triangular peninsula, the base points to the north and it's apex to the south. Most lowlands slope gently towards the Gulf of Suez, the lowest forms the El-Qaa coast plain. In the southern zone, the mountains come close to the sea forming a bold and rocky coastline that runs into the Gulf of Aqaba. The Sinai coastline is varied alternating high mountains, hills and fine-grain yellow sand beaches.
Land of Turquoise, Land of Enchantment, Bridge to Asia...these are a few of the many names used to describe Sinai. In fact, this land situated on the crossroads to Asia and Africa has long been a land of culture and riches. The beautifully preserved tombs and houses of the Nawamis in Wadi Zaghra dating from Chalcolithic Age (4000-3150 B.C.) prove this fact.
