Port Said, An Egyptian Town of European Style

Port Said is Egypt’s fourth largest city and after Alexandria its largest port, lies in a barren and desolate setting on a narrow strip of land which is gradually increasing in width by the deposit of silt between Lake Manzala and the north entrance of the Suez Canal, to which the town owed its foundation in 1859.

A luxury yacht charter to Port Said offers to superyacht travellers the opportunity to explore an Egyptian town of European style and architecture with a regular layout in the form of a right angled triangle, which has little in the way of attractions apart from its fascinating mixture of races and the lively and colorful Oriental bustle of its streets.

To the west of the Port Said is the great expanse of Lake Manzala, mainly consisting of marshland and reed beds, with great numbers of water birds.
