Importance:  It is represented in the presence of a special topography where the mountains are close to the beaches, and that it contains a variety of ecosystems of coral reefs, marine creatures, seagrass, lagoons, and desert and mountain ecosystems, meaning almost everything at one place. The valleys and mountains here are home to a large variety of birds, wild animals, and plants which have helped in turning this protectorate into a major tourist attraction in Egypt. Also for newbies here there are diving plans, safari as well as animal and bird watching programs. The reserve overall has more than 165 species of plants of which 44 are restricted to just this habitat. The reserve is also known for the underwater cave system which lies at a depth of more than 100 m. The system is extremely dangerous and unstable. Thus management of this area is very important to ensure the continuous flow of tourists to the place.

* Mountains and valleys abound with wild animals, birds, and plants.
* The areas separating the natural reserves located on the Gulf of Aqaba are considered environmental protection areas, and they include cities and investment areas "Sharm El-Sheikh City - Dahab City".
