Egypt/Sinai: Ras Muhammad National Park- White Island

White Island is not really an island but just a small sandbar in the western part of the Ras Muhammad National Park. All boats rush here to show off the “Egyptian Maldives”. This ain’t Maldives though but rather a small strip of sand that you need to swim to and then share with hundreds of other tourists. In other words – it’s a total tourist trap, albeit picturesque and photogenic.
