Agiba Beach

Agiba Beach retains Egypt’s cultural essence — tucked on the Egyptian shore alongside the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea. Here you can run through burnt tangerine sands that shine bronze in the sun’s glow or take shade underneath the neighboring cliffs. Located in Marsa Matruh the beach is mere meters from Cleopatra’s Rock. Stand on the famous rock and look over the water like Cleopatra did 2000 years ago, imagining how she lived in this luxury in ancient Egypt. The beach is still alive with the charm of the ancient Egyptians. Fan yourself while sipping an iced beverage at the cliff top cafe — from there, you can see how magnificently clear and fresh the water is and why “Agiba” means miracle in Arabic.
