• Al Maamoura is one of the most nostalgic areas of Alexandria that still exists today. Years back, Maliket Gamal Al Mayo contests would be held at Al Maamoura beach in the mornings.   Participating girls would line up in their best attire and hopefully be the most voted for. Afternoons ended with long walks on the side-walk of the main Maamoura street or a few rides in the amusement park.
