You must go & view the sunset from there, it is very relaxing. You just need a driver or a car to take you there if you are staying in the city center. It is also very good for a picnic.

If the fortress in Siwa town is THE place to see the sunrise, this is THE place to see the sunset. You can rent a bike from Siwa town and bike all the way here. The roads are simple and you will not get lost. There is a little joint that sells tea, fruits, etc. They are quite overpriced. Bring... More

Enjoy the calm lake and the travelling birds that take a rest by the lake before they continue their long journey from cold Europe to warm Africa . Lake is very salty if were are tempted to swim in.

Siwa is fascinating and like most of Egypt cannot simply be packaged into Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic, WW2 or modern... it is all of the above. Getting to Siwa these days is easy (at least in daylight) as there is a 300 km two-way well-metalled road that runs from Mersa Matruh to Siwa with a halfway house/restaurant in the middle at...
