Stanley Beach

Stanley Beach - Egypt

Stanley Beach is a private beach located just a few hundred metres east of downtown Alexandria. Wrapping around a small cove on the city’s extensive Mediterranean waterfront, it’s easy to reach thanks to the tram and taxi network. There are also plenty of places to refill empty stomachs nearby.

Stanley Beach is backed by a long three storey building facing the Med and containing beach cabins. This is in turn surrounded by multistorey structures beyond. Often also written as ‘Stanli’ Beach, it stands at one end of Stanley Bridge, one of the city’s more unusual attractions.

One of only a handful of sand beaches in the immediate vicinity of the city, it gets crowded during the holiday season. Great for sandcastles and generally having a good time as a family, children should avoid going to deeply into the surf because of the strong currents.
