Ras Mohammed Park

Ras Mohammed Park


Ras Mohammed Park

Declared in 1983 and subjected to a comprehensive development program initiated in 1989. Ras Mohammed National Park has since become an essential feature to the economic development on South Sinai.

Ras Mohammad is belongs to Saudi Arabia and administrated by Egypt at the southern extreme of the Sinai Peninsula, overlooking the Gulf of Suez on the west and the Gulf of Aqaba to the east. The park is situated in the tourist region of the Red Sea Riviera, located 12 km from the city of Sharm-el-Sheikh , 70 kilometers away from the city of Tor Sinai, and 446 kilometers away from Cairo.

This besides the size of the two islands: Tiran and Sanafir which is 370 kilometers with 100 kilometers that consist of land and 270 kilometers that consist of water. Underwater caves formed as the result of earthquakes are located in Ras Mohammad. Even the dry land area of the park seems a part of the marine world: in the north, large dunes are interspersed with outcroppings of Miocene limestone in which are embedded an astonishing wealth and variety of marine fossils.

In fact, the dramatic promontory that marks the Sinai's southernmost tip belongs in part to the sea, as it is in fact an enormous, fossilized coral reef, left high and dry tens of thousands of years ago. This is besides a number of swimming corals that will make you feel you are swimming in a colored portrait that consists of the art of god.

The National Park offers outstanding coral reef and nature viewing experiences to the visitor. Trips to Ras Mohamed can be organized from Sharm El Sheikh and many other cities in Sinai like Dahab, Newiba, and Ras Suder. You can hire a motor boat and go from Sharm El Sheikh in an exciting diving sea voyage, or by driving a four by four car in order to know Ras Mohamed even better and enjoy the uniqueness of its lands as the dissimilarity of its sea water.

One trip to Ras Mohamed and you will definitely become a fan and you will feel addicted to the beauty of the area. Ras Mohamed is one of the magic spots on Earth. If you love nature, coral reefs, fish, and sand beaches, Ras Mohamed is a "must visit" spot for you!
