Two stone jetties, or landing stages, lie in ruins on the Sinai coast opposite the entrance to Jezirat Faraun’s harbor. Made of stone blocks up to three feet square, the jetties were the receiving docks for goods unloaded by Phoenician and Israelite sailors on the island harbor. The south jetty, shown here, though now mostly underwater and missing some stonework, is relatively intact (see plan).
