Vehicles on the shore near the coral reefs off Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt
A couple of vehicles on the shore, very near the water, near the tourist city of Sharm el Sheikh. The waters of the Red Sea have some beautiful coral reefs at this location. But it's not only the below water, but the above water. In addition to trips on the water surface through ship, where people can come there for snorkeling or scuba diving, there are options for people to drive around on the fabulous locations. The land surface almost looks like a desert, being barren in great parts. There are excursions from Sharm el Sheikh that allow tourists where they can take vehicles to go near the water and then slip into the water for snorkeling and for other purposes.
If you are staying in Sharm el Sheikh, there are a number of excursions that are possible from there. You can get into a cruise ship that goes from Sharm el Sheikh to the Ras Muhammed marine park which is a short distance away, and then enjoy either snorkeling or scuba diving (after having got the necessary equipment before you get onto the ship), you can go to the monastery of St. Catherine (where Moses is supposed to have received the 10 commandments from God), or you can go for a land tour that also offers you the chance of doing snorkeling (while getting into the water from the coastline rather than from a ship). The photo shows a bus full of tourists who have decided to take the option of going by the land option to do snorkeling near the coral reefs.
When you get to the coral reefs of the Ras Mohammed marine park near the tourist town of Sharm el Sheikh (located near the tip of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt), you can see a coastline that seems barren. However, there are plenty of signs that show that the coastline is not barren; there was this strange structure just off the coastline that seemed like an observatory. And soon we could see buses and other vehicles that came close to the water line, with tourists either donning snorkels and getting into the water, or donning suntan lotion and deciding to get some tanning on the beach near the water.
As we were heading to the Ras Mohammed marine park located at some distance off the coast of Sharm el Sheikh, we came across these small number of dolphins that were there at the water surface. Since the presence of dolphins was so interesting, all the tourist ships spent some time in the vicinity before deciding to proceed to our destination. This was the scene as we were leaving the area and the dolphins were going under the water.
