General information about kiting in Dahab

Dahab lies in a wind tunnel in the Gulf of Aqaba – the wind blows with full force in the lagoon area. The reason for the strong winds during most months of the year are the thermals. Therefore, the wind in Dahab is stronger and more frequent than in other areas of the Red Sea.

The best kitesurf spots

The best spots are 2 km south of the old Dahab (Masbat), at the so called Dahab-City Lagoon. The water here is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced kiters. At the spot there are 5 large hotels, all with kite centres.
