A Glimpse of Egypt’s Breathtaking Beaches

Published

on

Egypt is one of the top touristic destination in the Middle East, known for its dessert life and Great Pyramids of Giza. However, it’s a shame that many tourists are ignorant about the fact that Egypt has several spectacular beaches that make up a perfect vacation.

The following are mind-blowing beaches in Egypt, that would leave anyone who visit them in awe.

They certainly compete with international ones, and in my opinion can be a great substitute for traveling abroad.

1. Ras Hankorab (aka Sharm El-Luli)

The beaches there can easily compete with the white sandy beaches of the Maldives, I know you will hardly believe this, but it is true. The beach is located around 60km south of Marsa Alam, inside the national park Wadi El-Gemal. The area, however, is undeveloped with no shops, hotels or restaurants, but it also means that you basically get to walk right into the middle of the sea.

2- Blue Lagoon

The beach is a usual go-to for regular Dahab visitors, who mostly enjoy kite surfing. Because waking up in a hut, surrounded by the turquoise lagoon and mountains, makes the perfect getaway for those who are looking for simplicity and relaxation.

Our recommendation would be to go hiking in the mountain and pay a visit to Ras Abu Galum, which is a tiny Bedouin village close-by.

3- Ras Muhammed

Ras Muhammad is the most famous national park in Egypt and one of the most famous diving sites in the world. It is a protected area near Sinai Peninsula, makes an ideal day trip from Sharm Al Sheikh and Dahab. The place is perfect for those who are looking for solitude and tranquility, as it is guaranteed to put your mind at ease.

4- Agiba, Marsa Matrouh

The beach is located 24 km west from Marsa Matrouh, it is certainly one of the best beaches that I have personally been to. The beach translates to ‘miracle’ in Arabic, and if you’re wondering why, you have got to see it yourself! The cove that’s only accessed from a small path leading down from a cliff top gives a magnificent view.

5- Qulan, Marsa Allam

Qulaan is a unique quiet resort town south of Marsa Alam on the Red Sea. The beaches are great for diving and snorkeling, and it is quite magical; seeing that not many people are aware of this beautiful gem. Qulaan boasts vast tracts of large mangrove trees growing in the salty water and hosting several endemic birds, therefore giving the area a breathtaking scenery.
