The mayor of Safaga, Yasser Shaaban, told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the city’s beaches are attracting medical tourists who benefit from the sunny weather, warm water, and black sand that are rich in natural minerals. He said that the hotels also provide sand burial facilities on the beach, with medical staff and equipment. According to published scientific studies, the water of Safaga has a high salinity level, which reaches more than 55 parts per million of salts and minerals that help cure many chronic diseases. The beach of Safaga also contains gold salts, due to the heavy salts that come from the rainwater that flows from the mountains around the bay.

These mountains have rocks that contain gold salts and other elements that mix with the rainwater and settle in the sea mud. Patients bathe in this water and then expose their skin to ultraviolet rays in the early morning and before sunset.
