A great way to finish a desert adventure is at the sea – Nuweiba is a nice option, and the Abu Galum Protectorate, with its undeveloped coast and crystal clear waters, is just perfect. From the desert region it is a long and not too exciting 2-3 days walk, so if you want to take a car that’s understandable. If you do want to walk, to Abu Galum you can start from either Jebel Mileihis or from the Haduda sand dune. It is a pleasant trek with beautiful parts, and arriving at the sea is spectacular. From Jebel Mileihis you can also walk to Nuweiba. It is a nice route, but most of it is next to car tracks and under high voltage cables. The finish is beautiful, as the view of the Muzeina village in Nuweiba opens up, but here again you are reminded that you’re back in civilisation.
