The Red Sea Riviera, in Egypt, consists of the resort cities lying on the western shore of the Gulf of Aqaba and along the eastern coast of mainland Egypt south of the Gulf of Suez. The combination of a favorable climate, warm sea, thousands of kilometers of shoreline, abundant natural and archaeological points of interest makes this stretch of Egypt’s coastline a popular national and international tourist destination. Numerous locations of the Red Sea Riviera are national Parks, both under water and on land. Desert and marine life are protected by a number of laws, and visitors not abiding to the regulations may be subjected to heavy fines.[1]
