Ras Mohammad is a national park in 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. About 30 km south of Sharm El Sheikh there is the southernmost part of Sinai: the Ras Mohamed. With its extraordinary beauty it is one of the or for some even the most interesting site in Sinai. This first and only Egyptian National Park was declared in 1983 with an area of 97m². Since then it has been extended to 480km² and includes marine and terrestrial areas [also on Tiran Island]. Climate: Ras Mohammad National Park experiences a very dry climate, with only minimal rainfall during the winter. During the summer, temperatures often exceed 40°C (104°F) and low temperatures around 27°C (81°F). Temperatures are mild during the winter, with daytime high temperatures averaging around 23°C(73°F) and low temperatures 14°C (56°F). Diving, snorkeling: Several areas in Ras Mohamed are an amazing experience for divers and snorkelers. Since the Gulf of Aqaba is very deep, the coral reef at Ras Mohamed sows up with a tremendous variety, enormous colours and spectacular underwater scenes. Corals: The park is surrounded by magnificent coral reefs that are famous in the whole world for its unique beauty. These corals are part of an elevated promontory that emerged after a change in the coastline some 70.000 years ago Camping: There is only one place in Ras Mohamed where camping is admitted. Visitors must get a camping permission from the Park Management. Wild camping is forbidden and will result in a money penalty or even worse. Species: Ras Mohamed is the point where two different water masses are coming together: the salty water from the Gulf of Suez and the less salty water from the much deeper Gulf of Aqaba. As a result of these two water-come-together there are now more than 1.000 species of tropical fish and more than 170 species of corals as well as a huge number of Sponges and Gorgonian. Protection: Because of its exceptional beauty and its enormous scientific significance, the Egyptian Government has declared this area as a protected area in 1983 (law 102). It should especially protect this area from any possible harm that could arise from the quickly growing tourism, There are plenty of damages, coming especially with tourism activities, that have negative and long term impact. For example, swimmers, snorkelers or divers that are standing or walking on corals in order to reach the sea are damaging the fragile surface. The corals are then open to bacterial attack and diseases. Photographers damage the nature just to have a better view, cars are going off tracks, destroy seeds, and do harm to the plant life. Boats are anchoring on reef areas and each time they drop the anchor they destroy huge reef parts. Every visitor should be aware that its action has an impact on nature and should respect the rules.
Declared the first Egyptian National Park in 1983, Ras Mohammed is located at the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula. It occupies an area that has grown to 480 square kilometers. The park is notable for its sharply defined raised fossil coral platforms which represent ancient shorelines.
