Port Said Governorate[4] is one of the Canal Zone governorates of Egypt. It is located in the northeastern part of the country, on the Mediterranean Sea at the northern gate of the Suez Canal, making it the second most important harbor in Egypt. Its capital is the city of Port Said, and it is the home of the Suez Canal Authority historical administrative building and the Lighthouse of Port Said.

Port Said Governorate is wholly urban, with 98.2% of the area populated.[2] Most of the districts of the Governorate lie on the African side of the Suez Canal, although Port Fuad lies on the Asian side.[5]
