Basata, an ecovillage run by Sherif El-Ghamrawy and his wife Maria.
Basata is always booked on Egyptian holidays, so call ahead. But you can come anytime if you have your own tent.
“Basata” means simplicity in Arabic, and this place lives up to its name. The camp/ecovillage is right on the beach with two mountains on either side, so there are no other distractions. You can stay in mud brick bungalows, huts, or in your own tent. There is a main hut complex with kitchen facilities and a lounge area.
