City in the
Ain Sokhna is a town in the Suez Governorate, lying on the western shore of the Red Sea's Gulf of Suez
If exploration is what you are looking for, then Ain El Sokhna should be your destination of choice. The city is a short drive away from Cairo, marking the perfect location from which to enjoy both the Pyramids of Cairo and the glorious beaches.
The name Ain El Sokhna (which translates as ‘hot springs’) refers to the nearby sulfur springs that flow from Gebel Ataqa, the Eastern Desert’s northernmost mountain. Being a year-round sunshine destination with gentle waves of the clear Red Sea that is located barely more than an hour from the capital make Ain El Sokhna the ideal destination to have a break from the congestion of the city.
Its crystal waters and pristine beaches are the reason why Ain El Sokhna is known as a center for deep- sea fishing, while Zaafarana is among the world's premier diving locations and famous for its wind and kite surfing too. Beaches and water sports aren’t only what this tourist resort has to offer you, as it is also a favorite spot for underwater photography, as well as an ideal one for camping. With a constant breeze, windsurfing is also popular in this city. In land, desert safaris in the nearby oasis and mountain canyons add to the list of attractions.
