Agiba Beach gets its name from the Arabic for “miracle”. It lies on Egypt’s Mediterranean Sea coast just west of the town of Marsa Matrouh. Set back in a small cove, the near white sands are trapped between cliffs on all sides. In fact, access to the beach is via a footpath down from the clifftop, making it unsuitable for very young children and those with movement issues. A small café at the top of the cliff offers refreshments. It is one of the few facilities beyond deck chairs and parasols. It’s usually open between June and October, when the beach is at its busiest.
At just 40 metres long, Agiba Beach is often crowded during these months, but quiet the rest of the year. Although its waters are shallow, the waves that enter the bay are strong enough for surfers to tackle, and therefore possibly too large for toddlers to truly enjoy paddling in.
