About Damietta

Set where the Damietta Branch of the River Nile flows into the Mediterranean Sea, Damietta is a popular getaway destination for Egyptians. Its port is one of Lower Egypt’s most active trade hubs and is surrounded by palm trees that are exported across the world.

Things to do

The skyline of Damietta is dominated by mosque minarets, including the ancient Amr Ibn Al-a'as Mosque. It was only the second to be built by Arabs after arriving in Egypt and has twice since been converted into a church by the Crusaders.

Be sure to admire the Islamic architecture and decorations of the Ottoman-era Al-Bahr Mosque, as well as the Al-Matbuly Mosque that was built during the medieval-period Mamluk Sultanate. Spend time wandering through the ancient streets of Souk Al Hesba, which is packed with small shops selling traditional Egyptian handicrafts and authentic eateries.

The twin town of Damietta is the nearby resort of Ras El Barr, which swells with beach goers during the summer months. Dolphins can often be seen playing just off shore, while migrating birds rest and refuel on the shores of El Manzala Lake.

Don’t miss a visit to the historic Ezbet El-Burj Lighthouse that overlooks the Nile as it meets the Mediterranean Sea. A town of the same name lies on the opposite bank of the Nile from Ras El Barr and is renowned for its fishing industry and traditional felucca boat-building.

Getting around

Damietta is connected to Cairo by regular train services from Domyat Station, with the journey taking around five hours. Damietta’s narrow streets are best explored on foot, while public buses and taxis are both available for day trips to Ras El Barr and Ezbet El-Burj.
