Wind and water have in the course of thousands of years, sculpted a gorge that in some places is only shoulder wide, and laid bare the layers of sandstone in the sides of the canyon. The fascinating and unique coloring of the rock in all imaginable shades of red and ochre yellow seems more to be the work of an artist than simply the result of erosion. To end a perfect day, what is better than a visit to Nuweiba? The bay is great for snorkeling or just taking it easy after the exercise at Colored Canyon. If you are very lucky, this can not be guaranteed you may see dolphins and even swim with them.
