Ein El- Sukhna (Arabic name for water spring) in Suez governorate, 120 km east of Cairo, is one of my favourite destinations in Egypt. Lying on the western shore of the Red Sea’s Gulf of Suez, El-Sukhna is known for its wonderful stretched beaches and turquoise sea. It is an attraction for travellers who can spend an over day or an overnight on its beaches and also for Egyptians who prefer to spend their weekend in a lovely place that is close to Cairo.
In my recent visit, I discovered another attraction, namely, El-Sukhna fauna. The moment the resort’s guests finished their breakfast at the terrace, a flock of birds landed on the tables and started to consume all the food. The scene was amazing as some of the birds were cutting the bread and others were helping in transportation. The waiters were just watching, as if they were expecting the arrival of the two- winged guests. Bon appetite!
