Good location for sunsets

The location is superb, facilities are much less so but one goes here primarily for sunsets and this is what matters most for this location.

Fatnis island is a really good spot in Siwa that is famous for sunset watching. The island gives you access to a great scenery that allows you to combine between water, land and greenery while watching sunset. A great spot for taking photos.

A must visit. Awesome view, relaxing and sunset is beautiful. You can go there from the city center by tuktuk in about 15 minutes or a long ride bike. They serve fresh juices, bedouin tea and shisha.
