Port Description


El-Arish port is the only Mediterranean port at the north of Sinai. Until 1982, it was merely a fishing vessel berth lacking the least of facilities. Since 1987, developments were made to protect the port seawards, and to adapt it for fishing activities as well as cargo traffic and transits, crop exportation and different maritime sports, after executing the port development works.
