Zaafarana is a remote spot located about 2 hours drive south of Cairto airport. This is a very quiet and idyllic kitesurf area with a large area of shallow flat water directly in-front of the Kitesurf centre (which is based at the one hotel in Zaafarana). A little further upwind of the centre there is a more exposed kitesurfing zone offering slightly more challenging conditions for the more advance freestyler (with the possibility of some small swell).
So if you are looking for a beautiful uncrowned beach with perfect beginner and improver kitesurf conditions and on on-site hotel, Zaafarana if a good choice. The absence of any mass development in the area means that the wind has hardly any obstacles making the cross on shore wind super clean.
Very good good normal bad
The combination of butter flat water (created by a large protective sand split) and the super consistent and reliable wind makes Zaafarana an true kitesurf paradise! This resort is all about the Kitesurfing !!
Zaafarana is recognized and one of the windiest places in the Red Sea with the best conditions from March to October; the strong and super reliable wind is one of the resorts selling points.
