West of Alexandria

The beautiful sands to the west of Alexandria are becoming beach, sun and water sports destinations.

One-time coastal village El Alamein is now a burgeoning resort destination with luxury hotels. The scene of a decisive Allied victory in World War II, there is also a war museum and cemetery. Nearby Porto Marina became an upmarket tourist resort in 2005 and continues to expand. Marsa Matruh is becoming popular for its soft, white beaches, azure seas and rock formations. The Rommel Museum is here. Siwa Oasis, 300km south of Marsa Matruh in the Sahara, can be visited on a tour.
