Sharm el-Sheikh

 Sharm ElSheikh

Owing to its dramatic landscape, year-round dry and temperate climate and long stretches of natural beaches, Sharm el-Sheikh's major industry is foreign and domestic tourism. Its waters are clear and calm for most of the year and have become popular for various watersports, particularly recreational scuba diving and snorkeling which some consider to be among the best in the world. Coral reefs, under water and marine life offer a spectacular and dazzling time for divers.

Visitors to Sharm el-Sheikh can experience a variety of water and activities. Beach seekers find many activities such as diving, snorkelling, wind surfing, kite surfing, para-sailing, boating, and canoeing.

Ras Mohammed is the National Park of South Sinai and located on the very tip of the Sinai Peninsula; it probably represents some of the most famous dive sites in the Red Sea with 800-metre (2,600 ft) deep reef walls, pounding current and coral gardens.

Saint Catherine

Saint Catherine city is in a region in the Sinai Peninsula holy to the world's three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is a place where Moses received the Ten Commandments; a place where early Christianity has flourished and the Orthodox monastic tradition still continues in present day; a place which the Prophet Mohammed took under his protection in his Letter to the Monks and where people still live in respect to others. Many events recorded in the Bible took place in the area, and there are hundreds of places of religious importance in the city. There are two ancient churches, and the Monastery of St. Katherine and the Rock of Moses.

 St Catherine's Monastery

Saint Catherine's Monastery lies at the mouth of an inaccessible gorge at the foot of Mount Sinai in Saint Katherine city. The monastery is Greek Orthodox and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to the UNESCO, this monastery has been called the oldest working Christian monastery in the world. The monastery was built by order of Emperor Justinian I between 527 and 565 at the site where Moses is supposed to have seen the burning bush; the living bush on the grounds is purportedly the original.


In Dahab, at the foot of golden-brown mountains, in the Sinai Peninsula, where an azure sky is silhouetted against these, you will be enchanted by a windy and adventurous surfing vacation. Along the extremely beautiful beach promenade of Dahab Town, you will be served traditional Egyptian or Western fare. There, you will also have an opportunity to browse the numerous bazaars. As Dahab is overall not too touristy, you will experience the traditional Egyptian lifestyle here, and also if you visit the Bedouin village of Ras Abu Galum. You can go to superb deserted beaches and snorkel at the countless reefs around Dahab. Simply let yourself hang loose. You will feel really far away from all civilization when you spend a night in the traditional Bedouin tent or, if you prefer, right under the stars. These starry skies, the unique wind conditions, the local hospitality and many other attractions are definitely not to be missed.

Our Insider Tips:

Ras Sudr

The Suez Canal, linking the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, has been a source of wealth for Egypt for decades. Less than 80 kilometres south of the canal mouth and a 3 hour drive away from Cairo we have discovered a new source. Not a source of wealth and luxury, but a unique oasis for wind- and kitesurfers.

Seldom has a spot made such a strong impression on us at first sight. The windsurfing and kiting conditions that await you are unique, not only for novices and intermediates but also for expert freeriders and freestylers.

The distance to Cairo naturally offers a unique opportunity to combine your windsurf vacation with a trip to the sights in and around the capital of Egypt. Depending on your wishes, this programe can be limited to a day trip or can extend over several days. Ras Sudr is certainly no party town. It is the ultimate dream spot for those who wish to spend most of their time on the water and enjoy the quiet, both onshore and offshore! You can count on making tremendous progress here and will feel reborn after your return.

Red Sea


Hurghada is a tourist center located on the Red Sea coast and the leading seashore resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and hotels provide aquatic sport facilities for sailboarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorkelers.

Hurghada stretches for about 36 kilometres (22 mi) along the seashore. The city is served by the Hurghada International Airport with scheduled passenger traffic to and from Cairo and direct connections with several cities in Europe. Hurghada is known for its watersports activities, nightlife and warm weather. Hurghada has become an international center for aquatic sports like windsurfing, kiting, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, and above all snorkeling and diving. The offshore reefs are considered some of the finest in the world. The warm waters here are ideal for many varieties of fish and coral.

The city provides a gateway to diving sites throughout the Red Sea, owing to its central location. In addition, Hurghada is known for providing access to many uninhabited offshore reefs and islands. Resorts near to Hurghada include: Al Quseir, El Gouna, Al-Mahmya, Soma Bay, Makadi Bay.

Marsa Alam

Historically speaking, Egypt is not only one of the world's oldest civilizations but probably also one of the oldest holiday destinations in the world. The ancient Greeks, Romans and others came here to rest and recuperate. There is much more in Egypt than pyramids and monuments — windsurfing and scuba diving in the Red Sea, for example, vibrant night spots, luxury hotels and restaurants. Egypt is a rewarding cultural experience.

Marsa Alam is Egypt's unfinished rare diamond, just waiting to be shaped. With the beautiful Wai El-Gemal National Park, Marsa Alam is an unspoilt protected area, appealing to nature orientated people. It is not uncommon to see turtles coming to lay their eggs on the beach.



Whereas the temples of Luxor and the pyramids of Giza are highlights for travellers interested in Egyptian culture, Safaga is regarded as a dream spot for windsurfers and kiters. Located about 50 kilometres south of Hurghada, this site offers not only numerous diving bases but is arguably one of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing spots in Egypt. Spacious sandy beaches extend around the deep sea port of Safaga, and one of our largest and best equipped Club Mistral centres is located right on one of the most beautiful and widest beaches of them all! The contrast between the azure and turquoise colours of the ocean and the barren desert landscape makes this area an impressive holiday setting and will turn your vacation into a wind-filled desert experience.

About 3.5 km away, Tobia Island awaits your visit — a small sandy cay surrounded by turquoise water. Joining one of our famous surfing outings to this destination alone makes a vacation in Safaga worthwhile.
