The Suez Port is an Egyptian port located at the southern boundary of the Suez Canal. It is bordered by the imaginary line extending from Ras-El-Adabieh to Moussa sources including the North Coast until the entrance of Suez Canal. Originally Port Tewfik (or Port Taufiq) was named as the entrance of the canal. Port Suez covers a larger area with multiple harbours.
