On the kite boat, you will live like you are in a hotel; not luxurious but very cozy and sufficiently comfortable. Each of the 10 double cabins is modern and functional and has its own shower and toilet. Normally, the boat stays anchored overnight at the kite spot in Soma Bay. Here, the boat lies absolutely calm and without rocking, even if the wind blows through the whole night.

Depending on wind forecasts and guests' needs, the boat will go back to the marina on some evenings, so guests staying overnight on board the boat can dine with guests at one of the surrounding restaurants or attend one of the weekly party events. Unlike full-week kite safaris, guests on the boat can check-in and check-out flexibly as the kite spot in Soma Bay is not far from the coast.

Retreat location

Safaga is located 50 kilometers south of Hurghada and is a location of numerous kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving centers. The contrast between the turquoise blue sea and the barren desert landscape makes this area an impressive backdrop. The pleasant temperatures and the steady winds make Safaga a perfect spot for kite and windsurfing all year round. The wind is usually around 1-2 Bft stronger than in Hurghada, because of the thermal effect from the desert; especially from April to October, the wind is very steady and constant.

A few kilometers north of Safaga is the "world-famous" Soma Bay. This bay has an area of several square kilometers, offers beautiful scenery, and perfect conditions for kite and windsurfing. Tornado Surf Center runs a daily Kite-Boat-Trip right into the middle of the Soma Bay, and thus, providing the ultimate pleasure for all levels of Kitesurfers.

In the city of Safaga, you will get an impression of the colorful life of an Egyptian fishing village and you can easily get in touch with the very friendly locals. Here is one of the oldest ports in the Red Sea, Port Safaga. It was established already under the Egyptian Pharaoh Sahure about 4,000 years ago as a base for trade and exploration in the Red Sea. Today, it is the main base for the Egyptian Navy for patrols in the Southeast of Egypt.

It also serves as a starting point for pilgrimages to Mecca, the export of aluminum, and import of wheat. Accordingly, the city is dominated by an industrial complex and cargo district. Outside of the hotels and resorts, the village has little further attractions to offer to the tourist. Along the coastline of Safaga, there are many inner and outer reefs which are very popular for divers and snorkelers.

Off the coast, the small sand-island "Tobia Island", is a favored day trip destination for many diving and snorkeling boats. Also, kite and windsurfers like to take short trips there. The slightly larger island, "Safaga Island", is a restricted military area and not accessible for tourists.
