Mersa Matruh was founded by Alexander the Great and used heavily as a port once Ptolemy, his general, established his dynasty here. This ancient Mediterranean community has many claims to fame, going all the way back to the reign of Ramesses II. The region is rich in history and archaeological ruins.
Located 250 km west of Alexandria, Mersa Matruh has it’s own International Airport. A popular retreat for those who live in Cairo, it’s still secluded enough to remain a hidden gem. Those who make it out here feel like they’re part of the inner circle, those who are in-the-know.
If you’re an avid golfer, then Almaza Bay is the place for you. Sweeping views of the Mediterranean and a cool sea breeze make golfing here a delight. A championship golf course adds to the allure of Almaza Bay as a golfing haven.
