On the 500-kilometre Mediterranean coast of Egypt fine beaches and the sparkling sea last to Libya. But many sites are still mined since the 2nd world war, or are inaccessible because of military bases, or it is simply heavy to reach them. The most part of available places it is already colonized by housing estates. Unlike Sinai and Hurghada they are aimed actually only at the Egyptians which beach culture considerably differs from the western. On beaches there can be no an atmosphere and coral reeves of the Red Sea, but Mediterranean differs possibility to dive by the remains of ship-wrecks, with a set of the military ships and submarines without that wealth of divers which you meet on Sinai. Surely contact the local centres of diving in advance as diving to some objects asks of special permission.
The most part of zabugorny travellers which go here, set as the purpose to reach an oasis Siva, instead of to Merce Matrukh’s disappointing city. Without considering beaches about Matrukh, it is heavy to reach other coastal settlements (or it is heavy to leave) without an individual transport though, maybe, you will consider that it is necessary to spend efforts to get on a known battlefield at El-Alameyne of times of the 2nd world war. Generally, the sea here can seem to the lonely. It is hidden from looks from the "coastal" highway by housing estates or crests. The railway and other roads along which it is located the most part of local villages, go further deep into the continent.
It is necessary to mean that sites of the coast and the desert are still covered unexploded to shells and minefields. Never come into the zones fenced with a being pricked wire or in though what place which reminds the thrown airfield or camp, even local herds of goats do not risk to do it. Adhere to perfectly known ways and ordinary beaches, and you will be in perfect security.
