Safaga City Trip

Experience authentic Safaga, as if time has stood still.

Safaga history

Highly recommended for those who want a closer look at daily life in Safaga.
With its 35,000 inhabitants, not so small after all. Safaga was a seaport connected by a regular cruise ship service line. The port city was founded between 282 BC and 268 BC, originally named Philotera (Φιλοτέρα) by the Greco-Egyptian pharaoh Ptolemy II Philadelphus, who named the city after the name of his late sister. With many phosphate mines, it is considered the export center for phosphates. Later tourism was added, especially kite-surfing and diving are very popular in Safaga.

Safaga City trip

The guide will take you to “downtown” Safaga. A visit to the local greengrocer and bakery. We further strolled to a cane sugar press. A refreshing glass of freshly squeezed cane tastes refreshing. A few more explanations about wearing and giving gold, popping in to order a galabya from the tailor, meanwhile taking a look at the domino-playing men. Peek inside a hair salon cum barber, and a souvenir shop where you can enjoy a hibiscus – or black tea.
With a lot of explanations about Safaga and Egyptian traditions, we depart back to the hotel.
