Egypt-Marsa Alam/pls recommendation for kite spots and hotel

Postby qwero » Thu Nov 18, 2010 7:48 pm

Hello to experienced riders,
can somebody provide me info and web sites about kite spots in Marsa Alam and closed hotels there. I´ve been at various spots in Egypt but not in Marsa Alam. There I suppose it should be better weather for kitesurfing in November/December time.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations. .

the biggest drawback of the Hamata kite village is that there is no accomodation. i`ve been twice to the Wadi Lahami village. possible to kite and eat 100m from bed. check the link below for exact location, photos and video from that camp. really nice experience (been there twice this year).

@reinis: thanks for your friendly help

@demonseed: I don´t understand guys like you. They are not lazy to reply but almost very stupid way " Check this place out.. Got a lot of what your looking for..; look on YouTube, Google, etc. " At last you provided one spot. Where are these "a lot of .." ? Do you really suppose that somebody is interessted for your idiots comments ? And your smilies make your picture complete.

I am really sorry. As you used as first comment : "check this out..." I considered you are again one of these "smart" guys with advice just to read hundreds of the forum pages then other forums thereafter google etc. but without any real advice what makes me pis..ed at last.
Sorry once more.
p.s. but your way of smilies using is awful

My friends and I have just been kiting at KiteVillage kite station recently. We stayed in the camping 5 min walk from the beach, with the cost of EUR 50 per night, including dinner and breakfast. The food was rather good and the overall quality of the accomodation was allright (air conditioner, shower).

We all really loved the spot - water much warmer than in Hurgada, knee-depth or a little higher good for practicing free style. Lots of space - can find a place without much traffic. It's not allowed to come close to the mangroove trees, though :-?

Also if you like you could consider a beautiful wild spot located north to Marsa Alam (you can find it in Google Earth: 25"18'01.16C 34"45'14.14B).
It is a deep-water lagoon, separated from the open sea by a shallow coral reef. The depth starts just 1 meter away from the shore. The wind usually is side-sea (north-west) and the water is nearly flat - perfect for freestyle. However you will need to get a car/taxi (the nearest hotel is Equinox El Nabaa Resort) to get there and have somebody to launch and land your kite. Also you need to be able to edge confidently so as not to end up in the corals.
You can see a couple of pics of this place here (please don't get confused by the Russian language :D ):

When we came to this lagoon we just missed a whole bus of Italian kiters, obviously the bus took them to the lagoon from the nearest hotel. It's a great kiting spot for advanced riders, and it's for free (Kite Village is 30 Euro per day, as far as I recall).
