Ras Mohamed is a very thin strip of land at the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula at the northern end of the Red Sea. In itself a peninsula, Ras Mohamed is a national park bordered to the west by the relatively shallow waters of the Gulf of Suez where the maximum depth is 80 meters (260 feet), and to the east by the deep waters of the Gulf of Aqaba. The water at Gulf of Aqaba reaches depths of up to 1,860 meters (6,100 feet) as this is the beginning of the enormous cleavage in the earth’s crust which separates the African and Eurasian continental plates.
