 Sea Trips to Tiran island are available every day.  Tiran is an island  located at the entrance of the Straits of Tiran, dividing the Red Sea from the gulf of Aqaba and easily visible from the mainland. It can also be seen from most rooftops... more in Sharm-el-Sheikh. Tiran Island is a mainly granite covered by sedimentary rocks and coral reefs six kilometers off the eastern coast of Sinai. The islands' only water source is rainwater that accumulates in holes formed by winter floods. Not only are both islands surrounded by reefs, but there are also four erg reefs (not attached to a shoreline) in the Straits of Tiran. The island has countless sandy beaches and clear waters and has been described as heaven on earth. Untouched and undisturbed by everyday tourists, Tiran island is totally secluded and isolated. Surrounding the northern and eastern sides of the island are the most spellbinding and spectacular live corals one. Due to these fascinating corals and intriguing marine life, Tiran and its neighboring areas prove to be ideal destinations for boat trips for divers and Snorkelers, in addition to  its interesting historical relevance for Egypt Originally belonging to Saudi Arabia, Tiran Island was leased to Egypt during the war of 1956, to President Nasser from king Feisal. The straits, being the only entry point, it enabled Tiran Island to play a significant part in the war and was used as an observation post  to monitor the passage of boats and ships through to the Gulf of Aqaba , thus preventing the entrance of ammunition during this critical time. Unfortunately because of its extended coral reefs, fierce winds, strong currents and poor visibility many boots were destroyed, thus causing the numerous wrecks found in the vicinity of Tiran. Many of these wrecks were cargo ships carrying merchandise. The only inhabitants on the island are the Osprey (fish hawks). Suited to their quiet nature and so perfect for their isolated life on Tiran island, the Osprey freely fish along its shallow shores.
