CAIRO: An Egyptian official in Alexandria said the coastal city is considering to establish tourist-only private beaches to offer its foreign visitors “the privacy that suits their needs.”
The chairman of Alexandria Chamber for Travel Agencies was quoted by Al-Masry El-Youm saying that the future of tourism in the city will be “very promising within the coming period.”
Ali Al-Manesterly noted the government’s recent agreements with Greece, Cyprus and Italy in efforts to promote tourism in Alexandria among the citizens of its Mediterranean neighbors.
He also pointed out that the city is considering to establish tourist-only beaches “to suit the needs of foreign nationalities” and will create an opportunity to promote beach tourism in the city alongside its historical and cultural aspects.
Al-Manesterly said the idea of allocating beaches to foreign tourism in return for fees is not strange for most touristic cities.
