The Sinai Peninsula represents Egypt’s link between two continents, as the border between Africa and Asia is drawn along the Suez Canal. At its most southern point, Ras Mohammed, Sinai touches the Red Sea.
Most of the peninsula is desert with a few oasis scattered amongst the sandy mountainous terrain. The majority of the limited population, mostly Bedouin tribes, lives along the coast. Some are settled, others still live their nomadic life.
Because of its strategic position, Sinai has been fought over many of times. However, since 1989 the peninsula, including the small town of Taba, belongs again to Egypt after years of Israeli control.
