Are you looking for white beaches to relax on, but don't want to miss out completely on some urban hustle and bustle? Then come the the immaculate coast of the "White Mediterranean", because that is where you will find a great mix of cultural sights, sporting activities and small town charm.
The Egyptian Mediterranean coast extends from El-Alamein to the small port town of Marsa Matruh. Visit Alexandria to see Pompey's Pillar or go diving to discover the sunken city of Abu-Qir. Get to know the town of El Alamein and find out about its history from the battle in the 2nd World War. Relive the millennia of history at many places in Cairo. A visit to the Egyptian Museum with its innumerable exhibits, wonders and treasures from the time of the pharaohs is just as much a must as an excursion to the pyramids and sphinx.
Alexandria, the second largest city in Egypt, has a population of around five million and a unique Mediterranean atmosphere. Also known as the "Pearl on the Mediterranean", it is famous for its fascinating mix of the historical and the modern. It is true that not much remains of the ancient city, but even today Alexandria radiates a Mediterranean flair with old European blocks of flats, cafes and Greek and Roman monuments. The catacombs of Kom el-Shouqafa, the underwater ruins of Montazah and Maamoura, and the lively arts scene of the city make Alexandria a great sightseeing destination on the Egyptian Mediterranean coast. Get to know Alexandria and the region better when visiting our hotel on the Egyptian Mediterranean coast.
The Iberotel Borg El Arab is 52 km to the west of Alexandria directly on the Mediterranean coast, and is therefore the perfect starting point for a holiday in the Egyptian Mediterranean region.
