How To Go Marsa Alam

1) By Air

Marsa Alam International Airport, situated 67 kilometers north of the city along the Al-Quseir road, is your aerial gateway to this serene destination. Given the absence of public transport from the airport, arranging a transfer with your hotel in advance is essential for a smooth arrival.

EgyptAir, the national carrier, operates flights to Cairo five times a week. Be aware that flight prices can vary significantly with the season and ticket availability. Additionally, the airport caters to various charter flights, predominantly from the UK and Europe, broadening your options for reaching this picturesque Red Sea town.

2) By Bus

The Marsa Alam bus station, located just beyond the T-junction on the Edfu road, offers a more grounded approach to traveling. Buses to Cairo, priced between E£140 to E£280 for a journey of 10 to 11 hours, run via Al-Quseir (E£50 to E£80, two hours) and Hurghada (E£60 to E£120, four hours). Departures are scheduled for 1.30pm and 8.30pm, but it’s advisable to check the latest timetables as they tend to change frequently.

Additionally, there are a few services each day heading to Shalatein, with a travel time of about four hours and costing between E£50 to E£75.

3) Servees “Min-Van”

For a more local mode of transport, the servees (minivan) station adjacent to the bus station offers regular services to Al-Quseir. The journey, lasting approximately two hours, costs about E£60. The servees provide an authentic and often lively travel experience, popular among both locals and adventurous tourists.

These various modes of transportation to Marsa Alam offer a range of experiences, whether you prefer the speed and convenience of air travel, the scenic route by bus, or the bustling local life of a minivan journey. Each option provides its own unique window into the beauty and culture of Egypt as you journey towards the tranquil shores of Marsa Alam.
