Ain Sukhna
Ain Sukhna, the Arabic for "hot spring", was named after the nearby sulfur springs. The springs originate at Gebel Ataka, the northern most mountain in the Eastern Desert. Close enough to Cairo for a day-trip, this popular weekend resort has fine beaches, coral reefs, fishing and water sports.
     
It is located about 55 kilometers (34 miles) south of Suez, and is the nearest bathing resort to Cairo.
