<The red Sea Coast>
The Red Sea is a gulf or basin of the Indian Ocean between Africa and Asia.
The connection to the ocean is in the south through Bab El mandeb and Gulf of Aden. In the north, there is the Sinai Peninsula, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Gulf of Suez (leading tio the Suez Canal).
The sea is roughly 2230km long and at its widest is over 300km. The sea floor has a maximum depth of 2500m in the central median trench and an average depth of 500m, but it also has extensive rich and diverse ecosystem. More than 1100 species of fish have been recorded in the Red Sea, and around 10% of these are red sea species. This also includes around 75 species of deep water fish.
The red sea water mass excanges its water with the Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean via the Gulf of Aden. These physical factors reduce the effect of high salinity 4.2~3.5% caused by evaporation and cold water in the north and relatively hot water in the south.
Hurghada islocated 22km south of El Gouna and 54km north of Safaga, the Red Sea to the east and the mountains of the Eastern Desert to the west. Two decades ago Hurghada was a modest little fishing village and is now home for more than 40 thouand people. Most of them are working in services for the more than 1 million sun-seekers and diving enthusiasts visiting the area per year.
Crystal clear and calm waters and fascinating coral reefs have mode Hurghada as the Egypt's most popular resort town with more than 150 hotels in all categories.
