Marsa Matruh is a lovely coastal town of Egypt which is close to the Libyan border and about 250 miles from Alexandria. Over the years it has turned into a perfect summer spot for Egyptians. Thee is always a great atmosphere on the streets and people going all the way. It also has a spectacular harbor and an airport. The highlight of this city is the beach that is. It is a big beach with white sand that makes. The beach area tourist is usually fairly empty. For me this is a bit unlikely, because in Spain it would be impossible to have a beach of its kind and not exploited. They have another way of looking at life, it is more about the beach.
