Europe and Africa both extend from the Atlantic Ocean to Asia. Europe borders the North Atlantic Ocean along the Iberian Peninsula, France, the United Kingdom and Iceland in the west; it borders Asia in the east along the Baltic and Eastern European nations.
Africa spans the Middle and South Atlantic Ocean along its entire western coast; 21 countries make up the coastline. The continent has only one land connection with Asia in the west, where the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt borders the Arabian Peninsula. Five countries spanning from south of Egypt to the Horn of Africa border the Red Sea, a narrow body of water that divides northeast Africa from Asia.
