About Cleopatra's Spring

"Beautiful place to stop and either dip into the pool as children were doing the day we visited. Or you can have a lovely relaxing drink in the shade, we tried two different lovely fresh and refreshing drinks made from herbs grown from the garden." - Tripadvisor

Explore the sacred enclave of Cleopatra's Spring, an iconic site nestled within the vast expanse of the Sahara Desert in Siwa, Egypt. This natural wonder holds not only historical significance but also stands as a popular destination for both tourists and locals, offering a serene retreat adorned with cafes and the allure of crystal-clear waters.


Known as the "Eye of the Sun," Cleopatra's Spring's name dates back to the 5th century BC, a testament to its enduring legacy in Siwa's rich history.

Travelers can choose to immerse themselves in the refreshing waters or opt for a leisurely reprieve in the shade, enjoying a variety of fresh and herb-infused drinks inspired by the oasis's own garden.
