Marsa Alam – Kiting in Egypt

General information

One of the best Kitespot ,maybe the best since March to October you can count on a steady thermal wind and this for many hours a day with temperatures of 4/6 degrees higher than Sharm (being the town 350 km to the south ) that in the non-summer months makes the spot more enjoyable. Surely + kitesty and less touristy than Sharm and probably slightly more expensive since there is a not a huge range of accommodation, but who seeks finds, and if you “work” a little bit you will find prices almost similar. Fairly easy to find good prices for hotels even at 4 or 5 star hotels and flights, especially outside the peak season. Ability to hire, many schools and excellent beaches in which to practice the sport
