Besides diving Safaga has much more to offer …
Wind and kite surfing
Safaga is a suitable place for wind and kite surfing, beginner and advanced. You can take lessons and start in calm water, right on the beach and in the shelter of the coast. As an advanced surfer you can take a trip to one of the islands. In the eastern parts of the bay you will find Tobia Island. A great place to start surfing.
Safaga Bay is several kilometers wide. In the morning, the wind usually comes from a northwestern direction and gradually turns to the northeast. The wind can stir in the afternoon to 5 to 7 Beaufort. The water is clear and azure and there are few to no reefs. There are separate sections for wind and kite surfing. In the summer there is the most wind, but it can also get very hot. There is usually enough wind, but there is also a day when there is no wind. In 1993 the world windsurfing championship was held in Safaga.
We organize wind and kite surfing in collaboration with Hawa Safaga Kite & Surf and Tornado surf center in Safaga. These are professional clubs with experienced instructors and well-groomed equipment. We provide the transfer to and from Hawa Safaga or Tornado surf.
