Hamam Faraun

Hot thermal water surfaces along the coast at Hamam Faraun and steam turns a few little caves into natural saunas. It is not a major tourist attraction, so making a detour might not be worth just to see this sight. However, it is on the Cairo-Sharm el Sheikh road between Ras Sudr and Abu Zenima, so if you are coming this way you might as well stop for a short visit.
