The location is superb, facilities are much less so but one goes here primarily for sunsets and this is what matters most for this location.

Fatnis island is a really good spot in Siwa that is famous for sunset watching. The island gives you access to a great scenery that allows you to combine between water, land and greenery while watching sunset. A great spot for taking photos.
