Sinai Peninsula, Egypt - February 26th, 2009

The Sinai Peninsula is a triangular peninsula in Egypt. It lies between the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the south, forming a land bridge from Africa to Southwest Asia. Its area is about 60,000 kmĀ².

The body of water to the west, separating the peninsularom the Egyptian mainland, is the Gulf of Suez. The body of water to the east, which separates Sinai from Saudi Arabia, is called the Gulf of Aqaba.

Below, in the Red Sea, many small islands can be observed. The shallow, turquoise waters directly below the southernmost tip of the peninsula are home to some coral reefs, particularly off the coast of the city Sharm-el-Sheikh.
