Explore El Quseir
El Quseir is a famous tourist destination located in the east of Egypt, 73 km north of Marsa Alam International Airport and 138 kilometres south of Hurghada . Inhabited for almost 5000 years, El Quseir is one of the most ancient cities of Egypt. The city faces the sea, hosting a major port specialized in transporting spices and pilgrims going to the Mecca. Today, El Quseir still keeps its old charm thanks, in part, to its historical remains scattered throughout the city. The city, however, diversified its activities to attract foreign travellers. This destination has become very popular for diving in Egypt and is perfectly suitable for a quiet family holiday dive. El Quseir literally means “the short, in Arabic ” due to the unique ability of the port permitting the inland pilgrims to conduct the shortest voyage to Mecca conceivable via the Nile valley.
