As Cairo's movers and shakers descended upon the sandy shores of Sokhna, we teamed up with sisterfriend CairoZoom to capture the magic and mayhem.
After Sahel season's definitive closure last month, our lives were suddenly devoid of the beachside parties we had grown used to. Our souls felt empty, our livers felt healthy; this couldn't be right. We had spent a summer full of daytime frolics and nocturnal antics, but now Sahel was cold and barren, like our bitchy aunt who always gave us dirty looks and had more cats that any single human should.
Thankfully, a saviour appeared in the form of Clique Beach Club, the newest spot to hit Sukhna's coastline, which promised to let us spend the day partying on the beach and the night, well, partying on the beach. The new hotspot's opening weekend saw all of Cairo's movers and shakers descend upon the seaside for some nighttime mayhem on Thursday, all day wild times on Friday, and a sun-dappled daytime barbecue on Saturday. We were there, front and centre, taking in all the good times and all the vodka, along with our snap-happy sibling CairoZoom. Here are some of the best moments of the trio of days, as capture by CairoZoom.
