The North Coast is one of the most enchanting places in Egypt, and perhaps the world. The charming blue waters, the soft sand on its shores, the water games and the many beaches make it a destination for everyone in the summer months.
Here we offer you a complete map of residential projects in the North Coast in the case you decide to buy a housing unit there.
The most important part of the North Coast is the different entertainment in villages like Porto Marina, where you will find plenty of water-related entertainment and water sports, such as Jet Ski, Banana Boat, and the Flower Board. Furthermore, in the evenings you will find better places, like Rubies in the village of Marassi, 6IX Degrees in the village of Hacienda Bay, and Tabla in Amwaj village.
In these places every year, the most important stars of Egypt, the Middle East and sometimes the world come to celebrate in the North Coast with concerts, which are especially attractive to young people.
In the North Coast, you can divide the time between water games and the beach in the morning, followed by concerts at night.
North Coast is more popular in summer
Mohamed Montasser, the chairperson of a tourism company, said that the most popular places for resorts are the places where traffic is moving and areas are more vital. The North Coast is the top place for this year’s rentals, by up to 80%. Ain Sokhna came in second place, which has 65% rentals, while Hurghada occupies the third place with the percentage of rentals currently at 50%.
Moreover, Mansoor Ahmed, Colliers International’s director for development solutions, healthcare, education, and public private partnership (PPP) in the Middle East and North Africa, said that the most popular hotspots for vacation homes are the Red Sea, South Sinai, the North Coast, and Ain Sokhna. While Ain Sokhna, the North Coast, and the Red Sea have always been popular, South Sinai has the most vacation homes under construction.
Samy Al-Quraini, chairperson of Yafa Mac Touristic Co., said that the North Coast has become more attractive to the holidaymakers than any other areas that were superior to them, and most people are heading there due to it suiting the middle class and being less expensive than going to Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada and staying in 5 or 4-star hotels.
Al-Quraini believes that the problems of the North Coast are almost non-existent, especially after the provision of all facilities, in addition to the growing interest of investors and pumping capital in the past period.
Most attractive villages in North Coast
By summer, the North Coast becomes the main destination for many Egyptians and Arabs, either for the weekend or for the entire summer holiday there.
The North Coast is characterised by its dry, cool climate in summer, thanks to its privileged position on the Mediterranean Sea, so it is more popular in summer.
