The Suez Canal is a navigable canal located in Egypt that joins the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. The canal turned the Sinai region into a new peninsula, constituting the border between the continents of Africa and Asia. Its length is 163 km between Puerto Saíd (on the Mediterranean shore) and Suez (on the coast of the Red Sea). It allows shortening the route of maritime trade between Europe and South Asia, as it avoids having to surround the African continent.
