Damietta Governorate (Arabic: محافظة دمياط Muḥafazah Dumyāṭ [moˈħɑfzet domˈjɑːtˤ]) is one of the governorates of Egypt. It is located in the northeastern part of the country, and has a population of over 1 million. Its capital is the city of Damietta.

Damietta (city) is famous for its guava farms, as well as the palm trees that cover the coast from Ras El Bar in the east to Gamasa in the west. The governorate exports millions of palm trees to many countries every year, including Greece and China. Damietta also produces wheat, maize, cotton, rice, potatoes, lemon, grapes and tomatoes. It is also famous for its sweet industry, sardine packing, and Domiati cheese. Ras El Bar, one of the oldest summer resorts in Egypt, is located at the point where The Nile meets the Mediterranean Sea.

In August 2018, Manal Awad Mikhail was the first Christian Coptic woman to be appointed as a governor in Egypt.[2][4]
