Very unique location, southern Egypt on the beautiful Red Sea coast. Port Ghalib is an international Marina with few quality hotels in it and the Marina Boulevard with great souvenir shopping options, or few different outlets to dine and wine and to night out. You can easily find mix of Italian, International, or Far East cousins... or even Baskin's Ice... More

Port Ghalib offers a nice Italian ice cream parlour, but not much else (except for a marina). Either in ten years time this will have become a heeving town for holiday makers or bried under the desert sand....

There are some very good restaurants here, but it isnt cheap to get to from the hotel. Due to ridiculous taxi prices.

We didn't have much time to explore this new shopping center as we went there incidentally to boarding a submarine trip, which was very good by the way. Not worth a special trip, but worth walking around if you happen to be staying in Port Ghalib area. The architecture was very nice.

The title says it all. It's a newly build small "city" consisting of shops and restaurants/bars all around an harbor. It's goal is to have a change of scenery for the surrounding hotels. Only worth a visit when you want to have a drink/food outside of your hotel.
