Ras Mohammed National Park is nearly 300 square miles, with over 70 percent of it underwater. To no surprise, the preserved wildlife area on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is a prime destination for divers. The adjacent Shark and Yolanda reefs offer a window into the abundant biodiversity of the Red Sea—along which divers can admire the saltwater-worn cargo of the wrecked ship Yolanda, which scattered a hold full of toilets and bathtubs onto the ocean floor when it grounded in 1980. Located near hotel-rich Sharm El-Sheikh, just 40 minutes north, the resort town offers many diving excursions to the park.
