Hurghada, Red Sea

Hurghada is the original Red Sea windsurfing and more recently kitesurfing resort. It's still one of the best locations for learning to windsurf and kitesurf with flat water, lagoons and superb centre offering flexible packages. Once just a simple fishing village, it has since developed into a bustling resort offering a range of excellent facilities, yet retaining its original charm and the traditional Egyptian way of life. Now you can stay in one of luxury beach hotels with centres on the spot. Just a short transfer from the airport, windsurf and kitesurf centre on site - off you go!

Sailing Spot and Conditions
Hurghada is spread out over 30 kilometers and the variety of launch spots make this an excellent location for all levels. A shallow lagoon offers a safe area with no drifting to make the first steps. More experienced windsurfers can start from the beach where the wind blows side onshore from the left with access to a large shallow area that is ideal to practice waterstart, gybes and other manoeuvers. This is a dream spot for freestylers and freeriders alike.  On high wind days you can find moderate 1m waves out to sea. The kitesurfing beach extends to 1.2km with large dedicated shallow areas for beginners and training, separate launch areas for the experts and the now famous sand bar located only 300 meters off shore, creating turquoise lagoons with easily accessible islands, visited with sailing excusions and boat support from the centres.

Culture and Activities
Hurghada is a busy resort and offers a great range of activities and entertainment. Our windsurf and kitesurf centres offers a range of additional activities including SUP, volleyball. From the beach you can enjoy wakeboarding and other watersports. After a day on the water, there's plenty to do with beach parties/BBQs, yoga, bars, nightclubs, including a Hurghada branch of Ministry of Sound and restaurants galore.  Hurghada is an established red sea scuba diving location with a choice of courses, dive packages and access to over 37 dive sites. If you want to get out and about there are excursions such as quad bike safaris in the desert, go-carting and trips to the Titanic Aqua Park. The best of Egyptian cultural excursions – Luxor and the Valley of the Kings are offered as a day trips too. If you're after a buzzing resort Hurghada its it.
