Ras Mohamed National Park

 

South Sinai is one of the most spectacularly beautiful landscapes on our planet and a mecca for divers. Sinai Peninsula's most southern tip - Ras Mohamed - separates the deeper Gulf of Aqaba from the shallower Gulf of Suez. Declared a park in 1983, the desert peninsula of Ras Mohamed disintegrate into broad sand beaches and than drop off into unbelievable rich coral reefs. Ras Mohamed National Park begins at the small bay of Marsa Ghazlani followed by the larger and deeper bay of  Marsa Bareika. Continuing along the coast to Ras Za'atar, Jackfish Alley, Eel Garden and Shark Observatory, to the southern end of the peninsula with Anemone City, Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef and ending at the Quay.

 

Because of the geographic position the Ras Mohamed peninsula is a privileged area distinguished to strong massive currents that transport large quantities of plankton and other food that give rise to an extraordinary growth of stony and soft corals and attract large schools of both reef and pelagic marine fauna, over a thousand species in all. Schooling barracuda, jackfish, tuna and all kind of sharks swim in these deep blue waters especially in summer from June to August.
