Ras Mohamed National Park - Review
Hey! Help solve a long debate. Does the contour of the cliff at the headland of this park really look like a bearded man’s face? Enough important people thought so that the place is literally named Mohamed’s Head. 480-square kilometres and encompassing the islands of Tiran and Sanafir, the park is a stupendous natural preserve of migratory birds, coral, thousands of fish (barracudas and sharks included), turtles, and a mangrove forest among other things. Its ecosystem includes marine life, desert life and swamp life – an unusual combo. They say the coral here is among the world’s most unusual and grand, making this one of the world’s most popular diving spots
The attractions are listed as:
- The Eel Garden – very literally named.
- The Main Beach- vertical coral walls. Access is restricted to the left side of the bay.
- The Old Quay - shallow water reef structure; water is calm but less crystal clear.
- Marsa Bareika – truly brilliant corals.
- Mangrove Channel - birdie-magnets; many migratory birds like Herons, Osprey. Etc.
- Diving at Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef.
- Check out Anemone City at Shark Reef.
- SS Thistlegorm wreck dive.
- Other activies include jeep safaris, horsebackriding, quad bikes, camel trekking.

Ras Mohamed National Park, Sharm El-sheikh Reviews
Beautiful natural reserve, the water is amazing and here I found the best reef with the highest amount of fishes around. The "magic lake" and the "mangrovie" growing in the Sea water. Wonderful, I want to come back by boat this time.
Visited few years back, its like heaven on Earth. Simply breath taking. Divers paradise.
Some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world! Pristine water and unique desert beauty throughout the National Park. Worth hiring a guide to provide some history and understanding of the area. Can also have a catered lunch under a tent overlooking the Red Sea.
Wow place for swimming and snorkeling nice coral reefs light blue water the mountains around are amazing there are many unique types of fish are available it's ten minutes away from sharm el sheikh it is worth visiting but one should have a bottle of water there because it is usually hot there
Wonderful time snorkeling here. Don't be expecting the Great Barrier Reef (nothing beats that reef) but still very pretty and plenty to see.
