About the Area

The Delta is lush with vegetation and its many canals work their way through the land. The Delta fans out like a palm tree trying to reach the Mediterranean. Vast fields of cotton, maize and rice decorate the flat landscape and the buffalo graze, plow or turn wheels for the grinding of the grain. During the winter months it is wise to bring a raincoat because of the high clouds that blow in from the Mediterranean. Along the coast itself, a sweater may be needed in the evenings.
