Alexandria, Egypt...Beaches Reviews
Beaches in Alexandria where you may swim! Jun 16, 2012
Ok guys, so Egypt is a very mixed society..so things maybe a bit tricky..in the streets you may see alot of Veiled women, as many now wear the Veil some even choose to wear the "Burka" (unfortunate Influence from Saudia Arabias wahabi interpretation of Islam)
So lets assume you want to see the other part of Egypt..what you may think is the "norm"
While Alexandria has a beautiful large coast & sandy beaches, in the city itself there are ONLY 2 or 3 clean beaches where you can swim normally & will see Egyptians in Bikinis etc..
All the beaches below are private not public.
1- Montaza (Aida Beach) *you can buy a pass to get into montaza then ask someone to let you into the Aida Beach*
2-San Stefano 4 season hotel beach. *you can go in through the hotel & ask how to use the beach*
3-Greek Club beach.*just goto the greek club & ask*
Then you can go onto AGAMI (once was the Hamptons of Alexandria then got ruined in the past 15 years) There are a few really cool beaches there where they serve cold beer on the beach & you will be hanging out with Egyptians not tourists ..Paradis + Bianki beach (you need passes to get in, you can ask at door how to get in)
Below is a video i made a couple of years ago in Agami..beach is even nicer now.
You can also take a drive to the North Coast & check out MARINA-MARASSI those are really trendy areas where you will find Egypts Elite at beaches like "la plage" etc
