Safaga sits along a slick coastline, which is said to be home to some of Egypt’s finest beaches. The sands here are scattered across shiny black dunes, and there is plenty of space along the shoreline for sunbathing.
If you feel like delving into the waters of the Red Sea, just a paddle might do you wonders, as the water is said to have a beneficial affect on the skin, due to its high salt levels. If you’d prefer your time in the sea to be more adventurous, you can try some local water sports, with kite surfing and wind surfing proving particularly popular in the area.
Under the surface of the sea hides an intriguing world filled with vibrant sea life and captivating marine creatures. Take a boat ride to the nearby reefs of Tobia Arbaa and Tobia Hamra and you can marvel at some of these underwater sights on a scuba diving trip. The reefs are filled with unforgettable highlights, from anemone cities to eel gardens.
No holiday to Egypt would be complete without exploring some of its ancient history, so it is worth exploring the surrounds whilst enjoying a holiday in Safaga. Day trips from the town will take you to some magical destinations that are filled with intriguing monuments, such as Luxor, which has been dubbed the Largest Outdoor Museum in the World.
If the sweeping beaches of the coast have you dreaming of a holiday in Safaga, take a look at one of Egypt’s most popular beachside destinations Sharm el Sheikh.
