El-Montaza Palace Beaches
Some of the most beautiful, luxurious beaches in Egypt, these are a set of five beaches and a number of natural bays. Hotels and resorts dot the area, and scuba diving is a must-do activity in the crystal clear waters. Equipment is readily available on these beaches, or tours can be organized from one of the hotels. Located near the town area, access to these beaches are easy and convenient – public transport is easily available to the beaches. Four of these are beaches open to the public, while one, the Palestine Hotel beach is a private beach that is open only to the guests of the hotel. The area is nearly picture perfect, soft white sand and beautiful blue waters, and tourists all over sunbathing and sipping cold drinks in the sun. The beaches tend to become crowded during the peak period, so be ready for a little crowd during these times.
Located very near the famed Cleopatra Bath, an ancient spring that has dried up and left behind a trail of rocky structures that make for an interesting exploration trip. The beach at Mersa Matrouh appears endless – the long stretch of beach runs along the waters, surprisingly calm for the length and size of the sand stretch. The sheer length of the beach and the size of the area make for a good cycling spot, and bicycles are available for hire on the beach itself. Swimming is also a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, considering how the waters are calm and quiet. The nearby coves also provide a good spot for exploration for tourists who are reluctant to do the usual beach activities, or for those who want to feed the inner-adventurer in them.
A small fishing village located in the outskirts of the city, Abu Qir is the perfect spot for those who do not want the hustle and bustle of Alexandrian city life to disturb their afternoon. The waters here a spectacularly calm as well, and the rushing of the waves against the surface provide for an afternoon of quiet relaxation. While here, be sure to check out the village as well. The catch is always good, with the proximity of the sea to the village, and locals are always willing to help fry up a meal or two for a small price.
The Corniche offers some nice beaches, with full tourist facilities, from the city centre outwards. In spite of miles of white sand beaches and azure sea, There are also fine beaches all along the coast from Alex to Mersa Matrouh, including the resort of Sidi Abd al Rahman, a secluded bay with dear waters and a selection of villas and hotels. At Mersa Matrouh itself, the natural bay and long white beach make for good sunbathing and swimming in calm transparent waters.
A small fishing town, you can sunbathe, fish, swim and eat fresh seafood.
In Abu Qir you can feel something strange than any other place in alexandria you can feel that you are in alexandria at past because the simple life , old cafes , fish huts on the beach and arround you alot of fish shops
