Only ten minutes drive north of Port Safaga, Soma Bay has two main bays, both with shallow water, a long sandbank and flat conditions. Plenty of wind throughout the year (but even more in summer.) this is a good location for beginners and intermediate windsurfers. It is also in an area offering plenty of cultural excursions to Egyptian monuments for people who don't want to spend their entire break windsurfing.
