We will visit Cleopatra's bath :
The colour of the sea behind this rock and all around the beach is magnificent with all shades of blue and turquoise dancing together in the waves.
The bath is a huge rock located 20 meters from the shore. I went walking like many others who came to visit the beach.
There is an opening in the rock that enables people to go inside the rock. It is not very wide inside it but you can see the water waves coming from the top of the rock and emptying inside the rock. There are openings at the top of the rock that enables the sunshine to make the water warm, forming a natural sunbath. People claim that Queen Cleopatra used to come to this beach to enjoy this same sunbath hundreds of years ago!
The beach is divided into two sections. The first section of Gharam Beach is one of the best places to swim in Marsa Matruh as it is the largest and most popular beach in Matruh.
The second section is the rocky section. You keep on walking from the other section of this section moving between rocks so wearing shoes or sandals is recommended. The water there is very clear and walking around the rocks can be fun. The different shades of blue colours of the sea are marvellous. You keep on walking from the right to the left until you reach the famous Layla Murad rock at the very end of the beach.
This beach is special as you can rent a motorboat and go around the sea as well. There are special places for snorkelling near Gharam Beach where you can see many diverse fishes and sea creatures.
The most famous beach in Matruh is Ageeba.
Western guidebooks call it “the pride of Marsa Matruh." It is more than forty kilometres away from the city of Marsa Matruh but the beach is worth the ride. The word "Ageeba" means "the strange or wonderful place" and it got the name because of the astonishingly beautiful nature of the beach and the mountains around it.
The most significant feature of this beach is that it is naturally set between two protecting cliffs and the beach itself is only thirty to forty meters long. Another important factor is that the colour of the sea in Ageeba is different from any other beach in Egypt or any beach around the world. There are different shades of blue and green mixed in a natural kaleidoscope of beauty.
