About 12.4 miles west of Sharm El Sheikh on the road from Al Tor lies the headland of Ras Mohammed National Park, named by local fishers for a cliff that resembles a man`s profile. The waters surrounding the peninsula are considered the jewel in the crown of the Red Sea. Ras Mohammed National Park comprises the two islands, Tiran and Sanafir. The park`s area covers 298.2 miles of pristine shoreline and boasts exceptional coral reef. These are recognized among the world`s best shore line, in addition to an inland area that includes a diversity of mountains, valleys, and sand dunes.
