Spreading along more than four kilometers (two-and-a-half miles) of the shoreline, Nabq contains the largest mangroves forest in Sinai. These plants are a true wonder of nature, as they manage to purify seawater from its salt with its roots, and expel the unwanted salt from the back of its leaves. That way they live without eroding the coastline by preventing residues from reaching the soil.  (image by Rosie Sarkic)
