"Ain Al Sukhna , Red Sea" Suez by cancon
Suez Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 56 photos
When it's chilly and noisy you start to search for places that provide warmth and relaxation. Ain Al-Sukhna is one of those places. Its uniquely exquisite features have made it a top choice both for Egyptians and foreigners.
Besides a few fast food joints, there is also the sea-food restaurant of Abu Ali (facing the Amigo Resort) that serves up excellent dishes of fresh Red Sea fish, shrimp and calamari. Hotel restaurants are another option. Ponte Vicchio, in the Stella di Mare, serves Italian meals and Il Proverbio serves international cuisine. There's also the Beach restaurant offering Lebanese and fish plates, open Fridays and Saturdays. Gabiano serves snacks by the pool.
Other hotels have distinctive international cuisine restaurants like Palmera Restaurant in Palmera Beach Resort and the Zaafarana Restaurant in Sol Y Mar Hotel.
There is no airport in Ain Al-Sukhna, but it can be reached in slightly over an hour by bus, train or private car. Unfortunately, there are no direct buses to Ain Al-Sukhna, so you have to take an East Delta bus (00+(202) 576 2293) from Cairo to Suez (LE7.25), then go by service taxi or bus from Suez (three buses daily, LE5) to Ain Al-Sukhna. Cairo- Suez buses leave from the Almaza terminal in Heliopolis every half-hour. Trains to Suez leave from Ain Shams station, next to the Metro stop in Ain Shams suburb, for LE4 at 9:20am, 1:20pm, 4:15pm, 6:45pm and 9:40pm, but they take more than two hours.
Ain Al-Sukhna lies on the Gulf of Suez just 55 kilometres south of Suez. Administratively, Ain Al-Sukhna is part of the Suez governorate. It extends 60 kilometres on the Red Sea coast from Al- Adbia in the north and Zaafarana in the south. Romantic expeditionaries, desert safari lovers and mountain climbers in the 1940s put Ain Al-Sukhna on the holiday map.
