Marsa Alam

The ancient Egyptians were there. From the area around Marsa Alam they mined gold and emeralds . The road from Marsa Alam to Edfu, in the Nile Valley, was built in the ancient times by king Ptolemy II . Mining phosphate is main industry in the area now but the area is fast overtaken by tourism. Now Marsa Alam is the virgin resort in Egypt.
