Why you'll love kitesurfing in Egypt!

  • Egypt offer a great combination of historial sites and worldclass kitesurfing
The land that gave birth to the first great civilization needs a little introduction. The pyramids, the minarets, the Nile – the scope of Egypt is magnificent. Pharaonic nations, ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians and Arab dynasties have all played their part in fashioning Egypt’s architectural wealth. 

But Egypt is also one of the world very best kitesurfing locations from March to November, with world class flat water lagoons, super reliable wind and the kitesurf centres stocking the latest and best kitesurf equipment.

Planet Kitesurf Holidays have almost 20 years experience arranging luxury kitesurf holidays and tours to Egypt, this is a destination we understand intimately. We work with a select few hand picked luxury properties (very hard to find in Egypt!!), as far away as possible from the package holiday tourist areas. We offer a bespoke tailor made tour service, combining the very best kitesurf locations, with an immersive cultural experience to the interior of the country. We offer a truly unique service, with unrivalled experience and knowledge.

 Cairo’s chaos whirrs around a medieval core that has remained unchanged since the founding days of Islam. Out west, Egypt’s ocean of sand stretches infinitely to the Sahara, with a handful of oases feeding solitary islands of green. Hive like; medieval fortresses cower out here, interspersed with bubbling springs and ghostly rock formations. Meanwhile, the deep, crystal waters of the Red Sea lie brilliantly awash in coral, surrounded by an aquatic frenzy of underwater life.

Egypt’s climate is easy to summarize: hot and dry, with the exception of the winter months of December, January and February, which can be quite cold in the north. The best time to visit Egypt depends on where you want to go. Generally speaking, winter (December to February) is the tourist high season and summer (June to August) is the low season in all parts of the country except on the coasts, and to a lesser degree in Cairo. Hotel prices reflect this.

Soma Bay is a luxury holidays resort on the Red Sea Coast in Egypt at 45 kilometres south of Hurghada International Airport, the ten million square meters, self-contained community of Soma Bay is surrounded on all sides by the sea. It boasts year round sunshine and mild temperatures. Unique to Soma Bay are its white sandy beaches and panoramic views of desert mountains. The resort offers a combination of a high standard of hotels and a quiet relaxing location. The resort is split into 2 areas: Abu Soma (to the south of the main bay) and Soma Bay (the main resort on the north side). 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 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.
