Dive and snorkel at the Ras Mohamed National Park
The rich coral reefs of both Tiran and the Ras Mohamed National Park region are considered the very best dive spots in the world. Take a two hour boat trip from Sharm to the very southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula where the Gulf of Suez meets the Gulf of Aqaba. Here sharks, murrays and barracudas feast on the rich plankton amidst the colourful corals. Ras Mohamed became the very first Egyptian designated National Park in 1983 and today covers some 480 sq. km. The underwater landscape of fossil corals captivates dive enthusiasts from around the world, so expect to share the waters with many other likeminded divers.
