Explanation:
This is so called ma-infinitive of the verb 'käyttää' (to use). Ma-infinitive is often used as a counterpart of e.g. English passive voice. Ma-infinitive declines like a noun and 'käyttämiä' is plural partitive.

For instance, the example sentence can be translated as: 'Also some "public" beaches used by the Egyptians themselves are available.'

BTW. This forum obviously is not intended to be a language studying site, but a place where translators can ask help at their colleagues.
