Unfortunately not many visitors to Egypt get a chance to visit the island unless of course their hotel is located there. The Island is green, with gorgeous Art Deco buildings everywhere, Embassies, and Ambassadors homes are located there. Great café, Diwan bookstore on 26th July street is there, Maison Thomas, La Bodega, the Marriott hotel with its fantastic garden is a great place to chill. Try their lemonade it has always been a favourite of mine over the years. There are great little jewellery shops, bars, restuarants, Sequqoia is a favourite for Egyptian food and sunsets. The Flamenco hotel where I have stayed is also located here. Well worth a visit
