Although there's no proof that Cleopatra actually bathed here, this spring-fed pool is very popular.

We enjoyed stopping by Cleopatra’s pool and watching children enjoy swimming. We stayed for tea and did some browsing in the shops. It was a nice short stay.

When you go there, do not forget to sit in the cafeteria and have a cup of "Lwiza", which is some kind of a lemon tea.

The pool is not the eye catching part. I see the cafe next to it is the main attraction. The style of the cafe is awesome where it mixes between the western and eastern cultures. The waiter serves mouth watering juices and the music is...More

I rented a bike to go there three times in one week, spent my time reading and drank and ate at the cafes there. It is very calm and beautiful. But the water is not the best in Siwa to swim in.
