Cleopatra's Pool

Cleopatra’s Pool

One of the most famous attractions in Siwa is Cleopatra’s pool, a stone pool fed by a natural hot spring, where the Egyptian queen herself is said to have swum on her visit to Siwa. Tourists have all been doing the same for years now; after all, a nice swim is so refreshing after a hot summer day tour! 

You will find a cabin nearby where you can change into your bathing suit but bear in mind that women should give more thought to their swimming attire; the local men aren’t used to the sight of a woman in a swimsuit. A tee-shirt is advised.
