EL-Ain EL-Sukhna: the Arabic for “hot spring” was named after the nearby sulphur springs .It is also an ideal site for fishing and water sports.
Ain El Sukhna is about 140 km east of Cairo, just an hour away by car. It offers Caireness recreational time, handy respite from the city’s fast paced life.
The area is 40 km south of the port of Suez and is administratively part of the Suez Governorate.
Its territory extends along the Red Sea shoreline for about 60 km from the southern borders of Ras El Adebbya in the north to Ras El Zaafarana in the south.
Close enough to Cairo for a day-trip; this popular weekend resort has fine beaches and coves, coral reefs, fishing and water sports.
This is not just a destination for people wanting a suntan and a week at the beach. It is also a place where you can indulge in history.
There is ample evidence that the area had its place in history. It includes a famous group of the world’s oldest monasteries west of Zafarana on the road to Kuraymat.
