Would really recommend this place for tourists ! Great artwork made from sand. Really a hidden gem. You need like 20-30 minutes to see it all, excellent destination to stop by when you are visiting Hurghada.

If you have an hour to spare and want to see a stunning site then this is it. This is a low cost trip that you can organise yourself by getting a taxi for a few pounds. I'd recommend this to anyone.

We 'stumbled' across this site on another planned trip. Absoulutely amazing place. Sand characters were all extremely realistic. We were able to watch the sculptors working on a new addition. Fascinating.

It's lovely here, but really hot as there are no areas for shade. But the sculptures are breath taking and the details are just sooo intricate. Just wish there was more
