Ras Mohammed is a national park located at the southern extreme of the Sinai Peninsula, near the city of Sharm El Sheikh. It encompasses the two islands, Tiran and Sanafir. The park's area consists of 480 square kilometers of pristine shoreline and boasts exceptional coral reef that are recognized among the world's best, and an inland area that includes a diversity of mountains, valley's, and sand dunes.

Ras Mohammed was inaugurated in 1983 by the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency as a marine reservation to protect this unique complex that houses thousands of aquatic species and a diversity of wildlife, including gazelles and desert foxes. This vast assortment of species composes a complete ecosystem which helps them escape their predators, find necessary supplies for survival, and reproduce.

Furthermore, the reservation contributes greatly in bird migration owing to a 1.1 Km area located at the extreme southern end of Ras Mohammed's Peninsula that serves as a place for resting and nourishment. In addition to its promontory that marks Sinai's southern tip, Ras Mohammed extends far into the sea with an approximate depth of 2,900 meters to offer a dazzling array of thriving reef corals and a vibrant marine fauna that could be witnessed in an exhilarating diving experience.
