Ras Muhammad National Park is one of the fascinating protectorates in Egypt and is located in the south of Sinai Peninsula bordered by the Gulf of Suez from the west and by the Gulf of Aqaba from the east. You can visit it on your way to the amazing city of Sharm El-Sheikh since the distance between both is about 12 kilometers. The protectorate includes various species of colourful fish, sea turtles, beautiful coral reefs and underwater caves created due to the occurrence of some earthquakes. It also houses a variety of major birds and animals on land like gulls, Heron, Nubian ibex, some reptiles and more which appear at night. It was established to prevent fishing by humans in this area to preserve the survival of Red sea creatures. In addition, there are acacia trees, plants, herbs and grass. You will get the chance to relax among the elements of nature and enjoy the charming view. The weather gets too hot during the summer and moderate in winter, so it is preferred that you head to the protectorate during the winter season to have an enjoyable trip.
