Montaz Palace Gardens

Built as his summer retreat in 1892 by the Khedive (hereditary Ottoman title of the ruler of Egypt in the Sultan’s name) Abbas Hilmy the palace (closed to visitors) gardens cover some 160 hectares and make for a relaxing escape from frenetic city life. A beach lies below the gardens and affords a degree of privacy not found on the city’s public beaches.
