CAIRO – 27 October 2017: In Egypt, there are 30 nature reserves
and protectorates which vary between geological structures, national parks and natural and cultural sites. Each is gorgeous in its own way but those reserves which are connected to a body of water are just almost magical! Here is a list of some of the most stunning nature reserves connected to a body of water in Egypt:

Ras Mohammed protectorate:
Located at the confluence of the Gulf of Suez and Aqaba, 12 kilometers from Sharm el-Sheikh. The eastern edge of Ras Mohammed is a 250 meter-long rocky wall where the coral reefs are located. Ras Mohammed's reefs are surrounded by all its marine aspects, forming a unique formation that has a significant impact on the formation of natural life in the region.

Ashtum El Gamil protectorate:
Located on the coastal road between Port Said and Damietta, seven kilometers west of Port Said. It stretches over 35 square kilometers, while Tennis Island alone is eight square kilometers. The protectorate’s climate is moderate in the summer and warm in the winter with rain on the coastal areas. It is also considered a main stop for migratory bird species seeking food and rest during the long migration in the spring and fall seasons.

This is a piece of heaven on Egyptian land that you really should pay a visit to, but before you go, here is everything you need to know about it. It takes around six hours from Cairo. The trip is not expensive, especially if you take your own car or rent a minivan with a group.
