Soma Bay has a commanding position on Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera coast less than 30 miles from Hurghada’s international airport. It sits on a peninsula surrounded by the Red Sea on three sides. Three miles long by 1.2 miles wide, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to the bay’s off-white sandy beaches, while as a gated community the security is second to none, making it excellent for families with young children.
Surrounded by luxury hotels and restaurants, Soma Bay has a backdrop of desert mountains. However, most of the attention is focussed on its clear warm waters. Prevailing winds make these waters a great place to try out windsurfing, sailing, and kite surfing. The house reef makes scuba diving and snorkelling further opportunities, with a number of alternate dive sites further afield accessible by boat. There’s also an 18-hole 72-par world championship standard golf course designed by Gary Player.
