    Taghaghien Touristic Island

    Desperate for a beer? This small island 12km northwest of Siwa Town and connected by a causeway is one of the few places selling the amber nectar (for a whopping LE40 a bottle). Shaded tables, paddleboat rentals and sweet sunset vistas make it great for a day trip or picnic. You'll need your own transport to get here.
