Traveling each weekend to the North Coast has become the summer ritual for most of Cairo’s inhabitants. Enjoying the cool summer breeze and clear blue beach is essential, but with the overcrowded beaches and the party scene that took over the North Coast in the past couple of years, we sometimes need a break from our break. This is when those beaches come in. You’ll find that they’re just as beautiful, and in addition they’ll also offer some much needed tranquility.
As traveling distance goes, it’s completely worth your time to hit the road for the breathtaking beach of Nuweiba. Not much goes on in the city itself, as the main attraction is the sandy strip of land overlooking the crystal clear water. The accommodation there is not only bungalows and huts as many would think, but it varies between camps, hotels, guesthouses, B&B’s, camping spots and many other options. It is one of the few places that hasn’t been corrupted by modern civilization yet.
Recommendations: Moon Island, Crazy Horse, Habiba Camp and Kum Kum 3.
