The formation of this peninsula has begun 30 million years ago. Arabian Peninsula and African were once in the same land. But, due to the formation occurred 30 million years ago, the sea begins to appear and separate the two continents. The Sea surface is always constant around 21-25 degree Celsius with a distance of 200 meters. Red sea has a surface area of about 438,000 kilometers square and maximum depth in the central Suakin Through, with an average depth of 490 meters or similar to 1,600 feet.
The Red Sea is located between Asia and Africa. The International Hydrocephalic Organization defines the limits of the Red Sea as written below; on the north part, it is bordered by the Southern limits of the Gulfs of Suez, Shadwan Island, Aqaba, and Southwest point of Tiran Island to the coast of the Sinai Peninsula. On the South part, it is bordered by A line which then joins the Husn Mrad and Ras Siyyan. To be more precise, it the coordinate point on the North border is 27 43’N,  34 02’E, and parallel to 27 27’N. Meanwhile, on the South, a line with these coordinate point (12 40’N, 43 30’E and 12 29’N, 43 20’E ) is bordered the Red Sea.
The Red Sea is located in the Middle of Asia and Africa, which then separate the two continent. It is also between arid land, desert, and semi-desert. The Reef System is better developed compared to the Red Sea, mainly because of the greater depth and the efficient water circulation pattern.
