The tourism industry growth and its impact on this vast and fragile marine wildlife have led the Egyptian government to classify Ras Mohamed the first protected natural site in
the country in 1989. Stretching across 298 miles, Ras Mohamed is located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula where the Gulf of Aqaba meets the Gulf of Suez Few could dare argue that Ras Mohamed is the best place to dive in the world. It is also a biblical area. Although there is no direct reference to the Ras Mohamed region,there is mention in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scriptures to the Red Sea,in particular its northern gulfs, where RasMohamed is their meeting point. It is at Tiran where some
scholarsclaim that Moses parted the sea, taking with him the “Israelites” towards the “Promised Land”. Therefore, Ras Mohamed is gifted with a wealth of natural wonders both
on shore and off shore. Vibrant coral reefs, stunning desert lands, clear waters and a year-round shiny climate are the major Ras Mohamed’s assets. There is no denying that the
protected land is home to one the most fabulous marine and terrestrial ecosystem. The surrounding mountains douse into the Red Sea offering divers woozy wrecks.
Amongst the most spectacular diving spots located at the southern tip of the park, there are Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef. Access by boat is easy. These reefs are vibrant exam-ples of the Ras Mohamed marine scenery. Ras Mohamed
is truly a Garden of Eden.
The Red Sea is a classic diving destination. Abundant fauna and flora, warm temperature, clear water, ultimate service and facilities, wreckages, proximity and small jet
lag… It meets everyone’s expectation: recreation.
