Egypt's beaches that border on the Red Sea have been a popular destination for years, and every traveler knows about the allure of the Pyramids and Cairo. But there is much of Egypt that has yet to be discovered by tourists, including vast stretches of beach right on the Mediterranean.
European shoreline on the crystal-blue Mediterranean is often high-priced and exclusive, but the Northern coast of Africa's access to the crystal blue water has yet to be monopolized by the tourism industry. Exploratory travelers can find their way to these unspoiled oases, which the Guardian says that tourists have somehow "tended to overlook."
Alexandria is one exception to the rule, and travelers will definitely want to begin their journey here. There they can explore the New Bibliotheca Alexandria, a tribute to the famed Library of yesteryear, along with exploring a 20km promenade along the Mediterranean. There are also plans to open an underwater museum that will house Cleopatra's palace.
However, heading along the coast toward Libya will reward travelers. Those who want a more relaxing vacation will want to stop by Marsa Matruh, which is slowly becoming a talked-about destination to rival the European Mediterranean resorts.
