Imagine clear skies, miles of white sandy beaches and translucent blue waters set against a backdrop of dramatic desert mountains - this is Ain Soukhna. Located about 46 km south of Suez and only 90 minutes drive from Cairo, Ain Soukhna is an idyllic Red Sea holiday destination. Although it is named after the hot mineral springs that flow from the nearby Gebel Ataqa, Ain Soukhna's main attractions are its beautiful beaches and year round sunshine. This region offers more than a classic beach holiday experience; you can also enjoy a round of golf, scuba dive in the Red Sea, explore the Eastern Desert or take an excursion to the Suez Canal or the Monastery of St. Anthony. Ain Soukhna is an ideal choice for those seeking a Red Sea holiday within easy reach of Cairo.

alexandria

Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria is packed with history and culture. This Mediterranean city came to prominence during the Greek and Roman Empires as an important port and seat of learning with the world’s first library. Alexandria was the scene of the great love affair between Cleopatra and Mark Anthony and both ancient and Napoleonic sea battles. A highlight of ancient Alexandria was Pharos, the legendary lighthouse that was one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Today Alexandria’s must see attractions include the Catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa, the Greco-Roman Museum and the citadel at Fort Qaitbey which guards the entrance to the Eastern Harbour. A holiday in Alexandria combines the history of ancient Egypt with the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
