Yesterday we took you via slideshow and video to Taba attraction Saladin Citadel and the nearby Fjord bay https://naturetravelegypt.wordpress.com/2012/11/06/saladin-citadel-and-the-fjord-bay-taba/ Today, some information on the Fjord…
15 km from Taba, the Fjord is aptly named as the bay is surrounded on three sides by mountains, resembling the fjords of Norway and Greenland. It is a magnificent surprise as you travel the road from either Taba or Nuweiba. After cruising along more typical Red Sea coastline and Sinai mountains, it appears suddenly between the mountains and takes your breath away.
There is a sheltered viewing platform, and from there you can climb (carefully, especially if it is windy) a short path to higher viewing points. While many tourists stop for just the view, the Fjord also offers great snorkeling and scuba diving.
Sherif Al-Ga’ly, diver and photographer of the excellent page http://www.facebook.com/RedSeaScubaLifestyle has many years experience diving and says “I adore this place, landscape is adorable and seascape is marvelous, there another “Blue Hole” underwater start from 10 meters depth underwater til 28m, inside the hole not many aquatic-life same like it is in the bigger Blue Hole Dahab, the coral garden outside the hole is great.”
