Gorgeous views of the sea, lovely palace - can only imagine how nice it would be to stay in the hotel - and a pleasure to see so many Egyptian families enjoying the grounds with picnics and children in tow.

A magnificent palace undergoing renovation which apparently have been ongoing for years, so you can only view the palace and grounds but they are beautiful and well worth the stop

A beautiful palace overlooking the Mediterranean. Nice gardens. A nice location to have a walk. The President was expected so lots of activity to get it ready.
