Declarado primer parque nacional de Egipto en 1983, Ras Mohammed está situado en el extremo meridional de la península del Sinaí. Ocupa un área que ha aumentado a 480 kilómetros cuadrados. El parque destaca por sus plataformas elevadas nítidamente definidas de fósiles de corales que representan lo que antaño fue la costa.
Beware! We took this trip with great expectations, but were turned back at the entrance as we did not have visas! The site does not mention any need to have a visa, and the only place you can get one is at the airport.
The tour guide asked us if we had our passports but did not ask if we had visas.
Fortunately, the tour guide put himself out to get us transferred to the boat tour of Ras Mohammed, and this was brilliant. So do the boat trip, but beware as you may need a visa for this one as well.
