Red Sea



The Red Sea is technically a saltwater inlet of the Indian Ocean, connecting to the Guld of Aquaba and the Gulf of Suez, which form the Sinai Peninsula. It is an ecoregion specifically marked for conservation, and is the northernmost body of water with coral. It was explored by the Persians and the Greeks and was the favored means for Roman trade with India and ultimately China. It’s Biblical connection is found in Exodus 14, where the Israelites crossed the Sea on dry ground, while the Egyptians were drowned.
