Guys I just came back from Ras Sudr and don't know what the whole fuss is about... Everyone is saying it's unsafe but we didn't feel anything at all. The most danger you find on the road is maybe a wild camel crossing, and seeing that, then you are lucky.
We stayed at Matarma Bay also and kitesurfed in Fly. The location is phenomenal and the hotel is better than a lot we stayed in in El Gouna and Dahab. The staff are super friendly, the food is excellent and it's a very welcoming atmosphere. We were lucky as they had a halloween party with all the people in Ras Sudr joining in. Great atmosphere
I highly recommend this spot as it's not crowded like Gouna and Hurghada and you have a lot of room to practice and you feel that you are on the water on your own.
We arranged with the hotel to sort us out with a bus to transfer us from the airport to Ras Sudr and back and everything was arranged perfectly for us.
It's a shame that the media make everyone so scared to travel while there is really nothing happening there that would make it seem dangerous. They even took us out on a beduin night with the locals to watch the sunset and drink tea at a nearby sand dune.
