1) Wonder Beach, Marsa Matrouh

This famous Egyptian beach may not be known to travelers from outside the country, and the word Agiba means "miracle" in Arabic.

Agiba Beach is a small but very impressive gem on the coast of Egypt, on the Mediterranean, which is located 24 km west of Marsa Matruh.

The only way to reach this stretch of curved beach is through a rocky path that leads from the top of the cliff to the bottom.

Once on the sand it's hard not to be affected by the transparent color of the water as the sun shines on the surface,

However this is a popular area and at the height of summer things are somewhat crowded here with people enjoying their days off home - but for the rest of the year it is almost empty.

The sea in the ocean is very rocky and the waves flowing from the vast ocean are very strong, but they also provide some great opportunities for surfing away from the rocks.
