The last day, and its a good one! A vague path climbs up into granite mountains striated with basalt intrusions, soon reaching a sandy wadi bed which winds up towards the final pass and a view of the Red Sea. A long diagonal descent of a scree covered hillside follows (take care) before reaching the wadi bed. As it opens out, an industrial depot/car storage site is reached, but once past this and over the highway, a series of long open sandy wadis go all the way to the coast, nicest if initially walked along the intervening sandy ridges. A highway is passed along the way by going through a tunnel beneath it. Just before the sea, a small road is joined which passes by a few hotels before reaching the beach. Congratulations! Why not enjoy a swim!
