Discover and Experience
The Oriental Coast is located between El Quseir and Marsa Alam and consists of over 7.5 km of magnificent coastline. More than 10 hotels (4 and 5 luxurious stars hotels) and 4,000 touristic residences between amazing villas, apartments and studios are planned and will be accompanied by an international marina, an 18-hole signature golf course and the cultural downtown center with its shops, retail and restaurants.
Some 35 km away you will find El Quseir, once one of the major ports on the Red Sea coast where Queen Hatshepsut set off from on an expedition to the mystical African land of Punt. On top of that, it was also a major point for pilgrims leaving for Mecca, as well as a significant trade route for spices from India to Britain. Today, Quseir is better-known as a first-class diving destination. It is also home to a number of attractions, including El Quseir fort, the port of Myos Hormos and several souvenir shops.
On the way to Marsa Alam you will pass the new, aspiring city of Port Ghalib. It is a complex of luxury accommodations, full service marina, conference hall and shops and the largest man-made saltwater swimming lagoon in the world. All of this is surrounded by water and lagoons.
Marsa Alam itself is situated near the Tropic of Cancer where the Arabian Desert meets the Red Sea, and it has the appearance of a tropical paradise with its palm trees, mangroves and sea coasts, fringed with barrier coral reefs. It has already gained a strong reputation amongst scuba divers, due to its numerous and unspoilt diving sites, both along the coast and offshore. Marsa Alam also has some inland attractions, such as the Emerald Mines and the Temple of Seti I at Khanais.
