Ras Mohamed National Park


The 480km2 of Ras Mohammed sits on the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, about 20km from Sharm el-Sheikh.



It has stunning views across the Red Sea which gave the area huge strategic importance throughout history. Today, it is a beautiful National Park, set up to protect marine and land wildlife and maintain the natural beauty of the area. Not far south of the resort town of Sharm el–Sheikh, this protected area is a must-see for visitors interested in the vast array of natural beauty found in and around the Red Sea. With building of any kind prohibited, Ras Mohammed remains a timeless and pristine environment in which nature flourishes.



For divers and snorkellers, the area is a paradise. Over 220 species of coral exist in Ras Mohammed National Park, as well as 1000 species of fish, 40 species of starfish, 25 species of sea urchins, more than 100 species of mollusks, and 150 species of crustaceans. In addition to these natural wonders, many wrecks are scattered around the sea bed here from the days when strong naval presences patrolled the area, considered to be strategically important because of its proximity to the Suez Canal.
