Although often overshadowed by more famous locations, Safaga boasts a narrative that would spark envy in any historian’s eye. Did you know it's often the unsung hero in discussions of world tourism? This lesser-traveled gem offers a wealth of experiences that have even attracted the film industry, with its picturesque deserts and coasts providing backdrops for blockbuster movies. It's a place where the past is not just studied but felt, as each grain of sand whispers stories of ancient times.

We'd advise starting with a local favourite: "Hamam Mahshi," a delightful dish of pigeon stuffed with fragrant rice and herbs, setting the stage for culinary adventures in Safaga. Here, the food isn't just eaten; it's experienced. Dive into plates of "Feseekh," a fermented fish that's a bold testament to the unique flavours exclusive to this part of the world. Even the less adventurous can savour "Kushari," a hearty blend of lentils, rice, and pasta, without needing a daring palate!
