Ras Sedr is an Egyptian town located on the Gulf of Suez and the Red Sea coast. It is a part of the South Sinai Governorate, and consists of three areas: Wadi Sidr, Abu Sedr and Soerp. The region has been known since ancient biblical times.

Ras Sedr is 200 km from Cairo and approx 60 km from the Ahmed Hamdi Tunnel crossing in Suez, on the western side of the Sinai Peninsula, and almost opposite the resort of El Ain Al Sokhna on the opposite Red Sea coastline. Approach to Ras Sedr is via the main Suez to Sharm El Sheikh road through almost total desert terrain. The road is dotted with farms where olives, tamarinds, and fruits are grown.

Ras Sedr has a 95 km beach coastline which offers waters for swimming and sea sports. The area also attracts bird watchers as tourists can see different species of migrating birds. Shallow water beaches and constantly blowing wind, makes Ras Sedr one of the best kite boarding sites in the world. La Hacienda beach resort is suitable for beginners as the wind carries the kite boarders to the beach not away from it.
