Welcome to Safaga!
Safaga is an unexpected seaside treasure! Endless black sand dune beaches, ideal surfing conditions, good value Safaga hotels, a golf course and excellent dive sites await you at the Egyptian port town of Safaga. The town is a quiet idyllic getaway from the pyramids, temples and touristy bustle of Egypt and a short 45 minute drive from the easily accessible Hurghada International Airport.
Great dive sites near reefs, windsurfing and getting away from the touts and bustle of the rest of Egypt are just some of the reasons to add Safaga to your itinerary on a getaway to this part of the world.
Days here will involve exciting Safaga tours to dive sites where wrecks of ships and ferries are beautifully preserved for you to explore. Diving schools will train you and get you certified to head out on more ambitious expeditions. Top it all off with a night time dive when the sea comes to life with brilliantly coloured creatures and perhaps enjoy a barbeque dinner on an island in the middle of nowhere!
A round of golf at the scenic Gary Player designed golf course at Abu Soma is a great way to mingle with some of the locals as well as other travellers who share a passion for the sport since the club is open to members as well as non members.
A Safaga tour to the Roman ruins at the granite mining town of Mons Claudianus in the Eastern Desert is fascinating, especially for those inclined towards archaeology and history. A desert escape of a different kind is a desert safari through the lunar landscapes to a lush oasis or Bedouin settlement. Enjoy a bonfire and listen to age old tales told by storytellers or feast on the local food before heading back to town.
There is also a great range of accommodation in Safaga, whatever your budget. You can use our Safaga map to choose your hotel in Safaga based on its location, and ensure that you stay close to what you wish to see and do in Safaga.
And not to forget, Safaga's claim to fame among the health conscious is its healing waters. So book yourself some rejuvenation at one of the many spas and wellness centres in the area. If you're looking for a cure for skin problems or rheumatism then the clean air and mineral rich black sand may be just what the doctor ordered - Safaga is doing some pioneering work in Climatotherapy.
If shopping is your therapy, then a trip to the local souks is a must-do. Pick up spices, alabaster vases sourced from Luxor, gold jewellery, papyrus paintings as well as specialities like the rich aromatic coffee and bright red fresh dates. Refuel while you are shopping with some fresh sugarcane, mango and other fruit juices and grab a quick snack of grilled meat or chicken pita rolls ' Shawerma' or fried lentil burgers 'Falafel'.
You are sure to leave Safaga with a suitcase full of memories, experiences and souvenirs! We can help you find the ideal place to stay on your Safaga holiday, as well as helping you choose the right tour in Safaga to suit your travel plans and budget.
