Best Kite Surfing Season

Very good good normal bad
Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec

the spot

There is a good-sized waist high areas in the bay that is perfect for beginners. 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.

the wind

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)! In the winter it is mostly big kite weather (14 - 16's).

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. With a wealth of destination knowledge and travel industry experience, we specialise in tailor made tours, so please ask for any special itinerary to take in specific tour / sightseeing.

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.
