Holidays in Safaga. All inclusive, Low-Cost, Package Holidays & Late Deals

53 kilometers south of Hurghada, stands Safaga, an ancient marine port that is renowned for its unpolluted atmosphere, black sand dunes and mineral springs. Safaga is considered Egypt’s primary phosphate export center and vital marine port. It’s also an exceptionally important therapeutic destination, offering its visitors an extraordinary potential of curing psoriasis, rheumatoid, arthritis, mild neck and back aliment, and improving blood circulation. It also has an enormous effect for skin treatment and beautification purposes.


Safaga’s pure beaches and stiff breezes make it an outstanding spot for diving holidays . In spite of being an eminent diving and snorkeling site, Safaga is more renowned for kite and wind surfing which made it the ideal setting for the 1993 World Windsurfing Championship. 


It also makes a perfect base for sightseeing, with the desert  to the west holding as many treasures on dry land as the Red Sea holds beneath the surface to the east. 


Day trips by speed boats to the Fire Wall , Forbidden Reef , and the ferry wreck  of Arish El Tor can be coordinated with local guides. Furthermore, trips could be arranged to the famous Tobia Islands , Panorama of Abu Qitan  towering reefs, and the legendary Mons Claudianus , the ruins of a Roman Settlement dating back to 68 A.D where granite buildings rocks from surrounding mountains were used for the sole purpose of beautifying Imperial Rome.

Ancient Egypt From Safaga

Safaga is a good base for sightseeing inland.  Luxor is within easy reach.  It’s often called the world’s greatest open air museum because the number of well preserved ancient monuments throughout the city and its surroundings, Luxor is close enough to make a day trip worthwhile.  Built on the ruins of the ancient city of Thebes, the City of Luxor is on the east side of the Nile with Karnak just to the north and Thebes on the west bank.  It’s a “must see” for any holiday in Egypt to view the Temple of Luxor built by Amenophis III and the Temple of Karnak. Luxor is also within easy reach of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens.

Mons Claudianus is one of the best preserved sites of Roman civilization in Egypt.  A Roman penal colony and quarry, the stones worked by the prisoners were used as building materials for the Roman Empire. The shiny black stones from Mons Claudianus can still be seen in Hadrian's Villa, in the portico of the Pantheon, in public baths and in the columns and floor of the Temple of Venus in Rome.
