Marsa Matruh or Northern Riviera of Egypt offers a complete Egyptian experience to any type of traveler. Bright white sandy beaches, luxury all Inclusive hotels and world-famous historical relics can be visited nearby. Situated in a large circular bay and protected by a series of rocks that form a natural dam, Marsa Matrouh is a relatively secluded destination but still full of life and history, on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt.

With long white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, such as Agiba beach and Gharam beach, described by many as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the legend claims that Cleopatra herself bathed in the calm waters of Marseilles Matrouh, in the already famous area like Cleopatra's beach, a portion that is still accessible to tourists and that you certainly can't miss.

The color of the water varies from blue to green, due to the differences in depth in Matrouh Bay. The coast, with irregular relief, forms an amazing underwater world in the open sea, with mountains, valleys and fish species in all colors, and near Alexandria there is even the ancient sunken city Heracleion-Thonis.

The Mediterranean coastal climate gives this region an extensive tourist season and is suitable both for beach and sun lovers and for those who want to live the full Egyptian experience and visit some of the most coveted tourist attractions in the world: the Pyramids and the Sphinx, Cairo city (about 4 hours away); the wonderful city of Alexandria (about 3 hours away) or the grandiose Nile Delta, along with many other unique sights in the Siwa Oasis area with the Temple of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra's Spring or the Mountain of the Dead.

Marsa Matrouh is in the northwest corner of Egypt, where Erwin Rommel - the "desert fox" himself, chose a cave near the shore to command operations during the battle of El-Alamein. Rommel's Cave is still here and can be visited, being transformed into the Rommel Museum.

The tourist area is served by Marsa Matruh International Airport, but also by numerous resorts and hotel chains with luxury all Inclusive services.
