Best Egypt Beaches
The Sunken City of the Sahl Hasheesh Bay
It is simply not possible to not take a peek at the world-renowned Sunken City if you are ever in Sahl Hasheesh Bay. This legendary Egyptian treasure offers magnificent views of underwater temple-like columns and structures, which in turn attracts the most colorful and beautiful sea creatures.

There are hotels on-site and professionals that will guide you through your Sunken City exploration. Thus, this is one of the best places to enjoy some quality Egypt beaches.
The Blue Hole (Dahab)
The Blue Hole in Dahab may be the deadliest dive sites on earth, but there is no doubt that it is also the best and the most popular. Despite the fact that it has been called the divers’ cemetery, people still come and dive here. It is a sink hole – vertical cavern – at 130 meters deep. And at 56 meters deep, the Blue Hole is connected to the Red Sea by an arch. Only the most skilled and experienced divers should take on the Blue Hole, and it requires a special mixed gas system equipment if you want to dive under the connecting Arch. Its beach too is very cool and has to be one of the best Egypt Beaches.
The Fjord Bay (Taba)
If you do not care for the beach or diving crowd, the Fjord Bay is one of the perfect Egypt beaches for you. This is a hidden jewel – a paradise rarely appreciated – on the Cairo-Taba road. The Fjord Bay offers great swimming and relaxation opportunities for those who simply want to get away from the rest of the tourist crowd. You can also do your diving stints here, or you can choose just to relax, be comfortable as you meditate and savor the natural beauty of the place. It is also popular for its unforgettable scenery and sparkling coral reef. The Bay offers the Fjord Hole, a popular diving site that can be reached by following a big coral bed at 16 meters deep – the hole will then be visible, and it goes all the way to 24 meters deep. If you are a less experienced diver, the Fjord Banana is the one for you. It is a shallow banana-shaped reef that can be reached at 12 meters deep and it offers a broad range of corals and fish species.
Agiba Beach (Marsa Matrouh)
This Egyptian beach is one of the world’s most fabulous virgin beaches, and it is famous for different shades of blue that its waters produce. The cold blue water and the clean white sands are comfortably snuggled between the stunning cliffs. For an incredible and memorable view of the different blues and greens of the Mediterranean water, you should try climbing up on top of one of the cliffs. One of the high cliffs offers a little cafe that offers great reception, refreshing drinks and a beautiful place to relax. Marsa’s pride, the Agiba Beach is about 30 to 40 meters long, but it boasts of the cleanest sands and cooler temperature. Thus, it is one of the most spectacular Egypt Beaches.
