Egypt is one of the world’s best windsurfing destinations. The Red Sea coast offers great wind and varied conditions. From beginners, to freestyle experts, to big wave sailors, Egypt delivers perfect windsurfing time after time. You won’t be disappointed by an Egypt windsurfing trip.
Dahab is one of the most well-known windsurfing destinations in Egypt. The resort became a staple on the hippie backpacker circuit in the 1960s, and retains that old vibe, with a jumble of laid-back cafes and cheap guesthouses. But the resort has smartened up its act in recent years, and now has plenty of quality hotels too. Wherever they stay, though, Dahab’s visitors get to enjoy world-class windsurfing. The resort has a shallow lagoon that is perfect for beginners. Beyond that, there is a fast speed track, and beyond that, an area known as kamikaze that is great for waves.
While Dahab is Egypt’s best-known windsurfing resort, it’s far from its only one. Sharm el Sheikh, the country’s go-to beach destination, offers some great windsurfing, with waves and flat water spots.
El Tur has been developed in the last few years as a specialist windsurfing resort. It attracts a dedicated crowd of enthusiasts and keen beginners to its wind and relaxed vibe. There is a protected flat water area for beginners, some nice swell off the beach of up to 2m, and a good reef break just down the coast with waves of up to 4m.
Pretty much anywhere you go on Egypt’s Red Sea coast is good for windsurfing. Hurgada, Ras Sudr and Soma Bay all offer great conditions. Windsurfing in Egypt is good all year round, although the wind is at its strongest in the summer months.
Take an Egypt windsurfing trip and enjoy world-class conditions that will test experts and give beginners a perfect introduction to the sport.
