    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. Early authors consistently referred to them as having come from the ancient emerald mines of Egypt, located near Sikait, about halfway between Luxor on the Nile River and Roman-era port city of Berenike on the Red Sea. (The coordinates of Jebel Sikait are 24°40’N 34°48’E; the site is located at a distance of kilometers southeast of.

    After sailing through the legendary Suez Canal, you will call at Ain Sokhna, the ideal starting point for a visit to the Egypt of the Pharaohs, and the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Le Jacques-Cartier will make a brief incursion into the warm waters of the Red Sea before sailing to the other side of the Sinai Peninsula and reaching Eilat in. The Gulf of Aqaba's Nuweiba Beach. One of the most-favored theories among those who believe Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia is that the Red Sea Crossing took place at the Gulf of Aqaba, specifically at Egypt’s Nuweiba Beach, which is located about half-way down the Sinai Peninsula.

    The stunning Red Sea is a destination of wonderful merriment that vicariously caters to the mind, body, and spirit through crystal blue serendipity and awe-inspiring attractions. With so much to do, it’s best to grab the day by the horns. One of the absolute best times to go snorkeling or diving is right after daybreak, when the winds are calm and the sea is motionless.   The crossing of the Red Sea by Israel may have been at Adabiya. Ahead of them, the Israelites would have been confronted by a range of mountains that dipped down into the sea. At this point the Red Sea is only miles (7 km) wide and a maximum of 26 feet (8 m) deep.
