El Tur is a very windy spot! The water is quite flat near the shore then builds into chunky one or two metre swells further out where the Gulf of Suez passes the bay. For even bigger waves there is a spit of sand near the bay with a reef break that creates waves of up to four metres high.

The far flatter lagoon offers good conditions for learners. This is a fairly new windsurfing location so it's still relatively quiet.
