The Ras Mohammed protected area includes a desert peninsula and underwater coral reef ecosystems that are internationally recognized as among the world's best. Their diversity of flora and fauna, clear, warm water devoid of pollutants attract divers from all over the world. The reef exists as an explosion of colour and life in stark contrast of the seemingly barren desert adjacent to it. In reality, the desert itself is rich in fauna such as desert foxes and the Nubian lbex, as well as birdlife such as white storks, herons, gulls, terns and osprey.
The Sinai is home to an extensive range of dive sites, with scores of spectacular dives to be made. The coastline is home to not only an abundance of reef life but also hundreds of wrecks, including the famed WW II army boat, the Thistlegorm. One of the most beautiful of all dive sites is the area of Ras Mohammed National Park, where Manta Rays, sharks and turtles can sometimes be seen. Dozens of boats set out to various dive sites every morning.
