    Alexandria is considered a main summer resort in the Middle East.

    Beaches become full of umbrellas and families and the city is usually crowded in summer.

    There are both public beaches (free and usually crowded) and private beaches (you should pay a small fee).

    ALEX a treasure 4 fishing lovers.HOW & WHY?

    Fishing is a common sport in ALEX because as we know ALEX is one of the best shores looking at Miditerranean sea.
    When u want 2 b perfect in something or good at it u must practise by urself.
    If it doesnt work this time u can detect something may b useful 4 u & if anybody told u not 2 do something just dont do it when u know the reason & take it as a harmful point cause u dont know what inside anybody.
    Risk,Adventure,Luck&God selection r the main points in fishing sport or we can say mission.

    Equipment: The best places 2 do this in ALEX is everywhere just like places called Bahary but u should b professional 2 face this place.
    There r also Elmax ,Abo Kir,Miamy small island,from Stanley bridge using bar.All those were marine carriers 4 fish.
    There r also brakish sources 4 fish like places called Salterns or Elmalahat.
    There r also fresh sources in ALEX too like Abo Kir source which called in Egypt [DEAD SEA].
    Just now u know where u can enjoy fishing in ALEX but how??????

    At first,
    The simplest way 4 amateurs is using a bar even if simple or machinery then before u use ur bar in a place where u knew the existence of most of fish is,u can throw some baits or any whiffing substance 2 extract fish in ur area.
    Then,u can put ur bait in the spinning bar and in ALEX u can use some warms or prawns as a bait.
    Then,u should get a hook 4 fishing but as u expect type of fish u may get,u must select the volume of this hook.u can also use douple or triple hook.

    U can enjoy ur fishing in ALEX,
    Just come&see,
    It's not all ALEX It was just an idea can b done in it but other interests can b shown here when come or ask about,
    Thank,

    Fish can be caught by anglers at Alexandria. I saw a couple of women fishing at Cleopatra Beach, and other youngsters also at Montazah..
    One of the women had caught a few small fish, but said that the sea was too clm that day to bring the larger fish.

    Equipment: Rod and line and bait.

    Waiting for lunch after the dives

    Alexandra Dive Centre is situated in Eastern Harbour, next to Tikka Grill. It is just by the sea and there are tables were you can sit down to have something to drink. When you dive lunch is included in the price and it is served after the two dives.

    Two dives, rental of full equipment and lunch were 628 pounds.

    The diving boat

    I made two dives in Alexandria and it was absolutely a different experience. The first dive was at Pharos Island, just outside the fort. It was very wavy and we entered the water two and two and descended along a line.
    In the water we could see what is thought to be ruins of the famous Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. There were big blocks, pieces of columns, a few sphinxes without heads, a stone relief of a man and a woman and a winepress (or something for water). I also saw a few fishes and deep waves in the sand.
    It was a shallow dive (max 8 metres) and we moved with the waves a lot. In the end of the dive I started to feel seasick and I definitely did back on the boat, where I quickly laid down without moving until we came to the second dive spot. Three of the divers threw up and did not want to continue. A small boat came to pick them up.
    We made the second dive inside the Eastern Harbour at Cleopatra’s City (Lovers Island). It was very bad visibility and you could only see the fins of the diver in front of you. When we descended we first saw what was left of an Italian airplane from the Second World War. In the plane was the mask of the pilot. We also saw pieces of some amphora and columns from what is said to be Mark Anthony’s summer palace.
