About The City Of Safaga

Sunny, unpolluted white beaches with captivating silhouettes of soaring mountains as a backdrop…nature at its purest prepared to heal sore bodies buried under its black curative sand…clean breeze, intoxicating worn out souls with its matchless freshness and melodic serenity… an ideal destination offering it all “Safaga”.

The abundance of fresh mineral springs, black sand dunes, and unpolluted air allow Safaga to excel in offering rare and natural remedies for common illnesses such as psoriasis and rheumatoid.

Hence, explaining why Egypt’s first female Pharaoh; Queen Hatshepsut {recorded in ancient history to have suffered psoriasis} regularly headed from Luxor to Safaga to be buried under its black clay sand, setting the town as a treasured healing destination since ancient times.

Today, Safaga has managed to significantly grow from being a small merchant port surrounded by an inactive village to become Egypt’s new thriving tourist destination.
