The driver is usually willing to make a short stop at the camp (approx. 45 km after Taba, 2 km after Castle Beach, 10 km before Nuweiba, little baksheesh for driver might be helpful).

VISA

Most Europeans can enter Egypt via Sharm or Cairo for a tourist stay with their ID (and pass photo). The entry with the passport (also to the temporary passport) is easier and quicker.

No visa duty exists for a stay up to two weeks on the east coast of Sinai (Nuweiba, Dahab, Sharm el Sheikh). Nevertheless, the visa duty for Egypt continues. The visa (30 days valid) can be acquired with your entry at the airport in Egypt and costs 15$. When entering with a European ID, a special entry card must be filled out at the arrival and be provided with two pass photos. Children under 16 years who still own no passport or identity card can either enter with their child passport or enter with the passport of the parents (from 2 years also with photo).

All travel documents must be valid for at least another three months from departure date (of your vacation). It is advisable to make a photocopy of your ID/Passport (best of all of the entry stamp). Vaccinations are not usually prescribed, but beside the revitalization of tetanus and polio vaccinations a hepatitis A vaccination is recommended. Please, in the case of doubt, ask the responsible consular representations and authorities before the departure.

CLIMATE

Egypt generally has a desert climate and a Mediterranean climate towards the northern part of Egypt. The best holiday season is during the months between September and May. The temperatures then lie between 20 and 33 degrees. 
The water temperature is 21C in winter and goes up to 27C during summer. 
Precipitation in Sinai is very rare, during the winter months there are some rainy and windy days. Inside the mountains of Sinai winter nights can become rather cool. The summer is to be recommended only partly because of its rather dry heat of sometimes over 40 degrees.
