Ras Abu Galum

Abu Galum is a Managed Resource Protected Area that covers an area of about 400kmĀ², situated on the east coast of South Sinai, right between Dahab and Nuweiba. It protects various coastal and mountain ecosystems that are unique to the Gulf of Aqaba. The coral reef is mostly undisturbed with a high diversity of reef fish, whose richness of its flora and fauna is overwhelming.

The reef at Abu Galum supports an active Bedouin artisanal fishery. As in other protected areas you can see them standing in the water (unfortunately also on reef) and fishing. They supply as well the local restaurants with the fish they get throughout the day. However, the fishery is being regulated (EEAA) just some years ago to reduce the damage done to the delicate coral reef.

Probably, Abu Galum is one of the most beautiful protectorates in Egypt. Its high mountains, its wadis, fresh water springs, its picturesque sand dunes, coral reef and gravel alluvial fans, this area hosts about 165 plant species. About 45 of these species can only be seen in Abu Galum and are unique to this area.
Saint Catherine Monastery

The monastery was built by order of Emperor Justinian I between 527 and 565, enclosing the Chapel of the Burning Bush ordered to be built by Helena, the mother of Constantine I, at the site where Moses is supposed to have seen the burning bush; the living bush on the grounds is purportedly the original. It is also referred to as “St. Helen’s Chapel.” The site is sacred to Judaism,Christianity and Islam.

Though it is commonly known as Saint Catherine’s, the full, official name of the monastery is, The Sacred and Imperial Monastery of the God-Trodden Mount of Sinai, and the patronal feast of the monastery is the Transfiguration. The site was associated with St. Catherine of Alexandria (whose relics were purported to have been miraculously transported there by angels) and it became a favorite site of pilgrimage.

Catherine of Alexandria was a Christian martyr initially sentenced to death on the wheel. However, when this failed to kill her, she was beheaded. According to tradition, angels took her remains to Mount Sinai. Around the year 800, monks from the Sinai Monastery found her remains.
