Red Sea Coast
The Red Sea Coast is a region of eastern Egypt, following the shoreline of the Red Sea for 800 km (500 miles) from Suez in the north to the Sudanese border in the south. It is Egypt's fastest developing area for overseas travelers and is best known for its warm climate year-round, for its clear azure waters, for its beach resorts and - given the presence of many species of exotic fish and coral - for its value as a diving destination.
Note that Egypt's Sinai peninsula also borders the Red Sea, but is considered a separate region.
There are two regions: Main land Egypt and the Sinai peninsular. These regions are separated by water and crossings can be done either by ferry Sharm el Sheikh in the Sinai to Hurghada on the mainland or the tunnel.
