Cruises from Sokhna
Sokhna is a resort town in Egypt on the Gulf of Suez. It is located about 45 km south of Suez and has some of the best resorts on the Red Sea. Its Arabic name translates as "hot spring", after the sulfur springs originating in a nearby Eastern Desert mountain. This popular weekend resort has fine beaches, coral reefs, fishing and water sports.
Being the nearest port to Cairo, not surprisingly most visitors travel the three hours to this legendary city. Enjoy a meal at a local restaurant and do some souvenir shopping.
