The Red Sea is a narrow body of water between the northeastern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The water itself is not red, but appears so due to the masses of reddish seaweed found in it. The sea is spread over an area of 4,56,000 square kilometers.
The Black Sea’s name is believed to be derived from its stormy and treacherous character rather than the color of its waters. Nevertheless, this 4,48,000 square kilometers sea does look dark in winter due to heavy fogs.
