The Northen coast is one of the best places to swim in Alexandria specially Marina.
its not crowded at all and the sea is very clean,just it may has high waves at sometimes but I always enjoy going there to swim with my friends.
its better to swim there because you can wear your Bikini "for women" with no hassels from others because those areas are for people who wears Bikini,but if you did this at the seas in the downtown I am not sure what will happen to you.!!
but millions of eyes will looks to your body,so northen coast is your way for a safe and relaxing swim,
there are many touristic villages there,hundreds over the coast but I like Marina and some others,if you are comming I can handle a pass for you so you can join because its for members only,but its easy for us :)
Directions: take the road to Marsa Matrouh you will find many villages on your right hand.
If you want to make shopping in Alexandria you have many places to do shopping in.
but I suggest you to go to Smouha "where exactly I live" there are many shops,mall,everything you want you will find it .
if you want to buy something little bit cheaper so you can go to Raml Station in the downtown.
Directions: Smouha area
Its a very good thing that we have a great library like this in Egypt.
its honor and we like it.
the library is 11 floors,4 of them in under the sea level.
millions of books/magazines and museums inside the castle.
The Library is closed in Tuesday in winter but actually I dont know when it closes in summer,I will update you soon with it.
Directions: take tram to drop you in Shatby tram station
anyone walk on the sea coast in Alexandria will walk walk walk,untill he forget the time,
he will found himself walked for 4 or 5 kilometers without even feel.
its somewhere for relaxation,spending good time looking to Egyptian people.also having some fun .
it depends where you will start walking but for me I start walking from Raml Station to the castle which is about 3 kilometers or little bit more,but I never think about this.
I always enjoy this and doing it from time to time.
Directions: The heart of alexandria
Montaza palace is always known a private area in Alexandria.
maybe for lovers as it is one of the most areas with trees and something like that which make you feel free and satisfied from what you see.
also if you want to go to the beach and you wearing Bikini this is your only way,Paradise Inn beach is the only way to swim with Bikini.
Montaza Palace is higher price than everywhere else,but I am sure that you will enjoy the time there.
its a new thing in Alexandria,but it beat all in its beuty.
Stanly bridge is a bridge over the sea you see the sea from both sides,lights is down there.,you walk and enjoy the fresh air and the lights.
just be aware while you are crossing Kornish,the cars are super super fast,you can use walkers tunnel to be there.
Directions: Stanly bridge is well known thing in Stanly area.near Sidi Gaber
Qaietbay castle is the only castle in Alexandria.
its on the sea coast,was made to defend Alexandria incase of any invasion from the sea.
The castle contain a museum inside,prison,mosque and weapons.
you will enjoy going there and see the sea from top view.
Directions: if you are take a taxi tell him el Kalaa.
its on Gomrok area you can see everywhere while you are walking on the street.
I always enjoy going there,it contain many things which they found under water.
many statues for old kinds,Alexandria,Christian people and many many things.
it is not the big museum but you will enjoy it while it is small.
you can go there after being on library of Qaiet Bay Castle,it will not take more than 1 hour.
Fee is : 8 pounds "year ago"
Location: Sultan Hussien Street.
Directions: From Sultan Hussien street ask anyone there how I can go to the greek roman musuem they will point it to you.
