Red Sea Travel Guide

The Red Sea coast is a beautiful area that runs up to Sharm-El-Sheikh and the interior Egyptian mainland before divering into the Gulf of Suez to the west and the Gulf of Aqaba up to Israel in the east. The many mountain ranges along the Red Sea coast inspired the mariners of antiquity to name it the "Sea Mare Rostrum", or the Red Sea.
