Safaga is the ultimate all-round kitesurf spot and suitable for everyone, from beginners to absolute experts! The turquoise waters of Kite Bay commence upwind of the bathing zone; here kitesurfers will find a waist-deep kitesurf area, the first part of which is protected by a spit. At high tide, Kite Bay is ideally suited to body dragging and water-start instruction and of course for one's first few metres on the kitesurf board.

There you will find a very long beach which is just perfect for going upwind. The spot is excellently suited to advanced kitesurfers, due to its outstanding wind potential.
