Marsa Alam – Kiting in Egypt

General information

One of the best kitespots, if not the best, as you can expect a constant thermal wind for many hours a day from March to October at temperatures 4-5 degrees warmer than in Sharm (Marsa Alam is 350 km south of Sharm). These warmer temperatures are clearly a pleasant advantage for this spot.

Marsa Alam is definitely less touristic than Sharm, and probably a little bit more expensive since there are not so many hotels to choose from. But I am sure that you will find similar prices as in Sharm if you look around a bit.

There are rentals, schools and great beaches for kitesurfing.
