THE KITESURFING IN SOMA BAY

Soma Bay is one of the very best kitesurf location in Egypt due to is wind reliability and huge kitesurf lagoon. There exact kitesurf spot will depend on which side of the lagoon you are based, although all areas are accessible by a short boat ride or a even within kiting distance. 

The 'Abu Soma' southern side of the lagoon offer arguably the best conditions with side to side-on shore wind and easy access to a good-sized waist high areas in the bay that is perfect for beginners. On the 'Soma Bay' northern part of the lagoon the wind is off-shore meaning that the conditions can be a bit gusty directly off the shore. Even though it is off shore wind here it is still very safe as the worst case is ytu end up on a beach the other side of the lagoon. 

Both areas offer super flat conditions although the up wind bay has the added benefit of super clean wind. This spot is just amazing for beginners and intermediate looking to build confidence.

Planet Kitesurf only work with the very best kitesurf centres in Soma Bay and we have years of experience selling this resort. As part of your booking process we will take into account your kitesurfing level, general holiday requirements and budget and ensure we locate you in the correct area and hotel. That is just one of the benefits or booking with Planet Travel.

 

THE WIND IN SOMA BAY

There is wind throughout the year, with some of the best in the summer. However, as Soma Bay also enjoys at least 1 Beaufort more than Hurghada further up the coast, it is a popular spot throughout the year. In the summer months, from May to October, the average wind is around 22 knots with the afternoons sometimes getting up to 25 / 30 (especially in September)! 

Activities

Soma Bay is a secluded spot for those wishing to just relax in luxury if not on the water. However, there are a variety of excursions, tours and day trips to the interior of this fascinating country. Egypt is probably the world's oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago. This "Gift of the Nile", as described by Herodotus, boasts a longer recorded history than any other country on earth. A country of legends and mysteries, the birthplace of ancient civilization with a third of the world's most magnificent and awesome monuments and treasures.

Nightlife

Soma Bay does not have a town so this is a hotel based holiday. Safaga is the closest town but has very little to offer in the evenings, so if you feel the need for bright lights, then head for Hurghada.
