+ Family like atmosphere at Ibi & Friends Kiteclub Seahorse Bay
+ Living right at the spot, without TukTuk rides
+ Complete packages for beginner, intermediate and advanced
+ Limited availability for more space on the water

+ NEW: 1 week Movie Gate Hotel including flight and transfer

Together with our longtime partner and friends from Ibi & Friends we discovered and developed Seahorse Bay between Hurghada and El Gouna for kitesurfers. The new and comfortable kite villa has been completed and opened in March 2011. Because of these perfect conditions we decided to make an exclusive contract with the Kite Club in Seahorse Bay.

Right at this new spot there are indeed three things that we haven’t seen in Egypt anywhere else:

1. Accommodations right at the spot (even on the kite school area): You have the choice between three different accommodations right at the spot with no more than a five minutes walk from the new kite centre. Missing out on wind because of tuk-tuk rides or late busses belongs to the past.

2. Limited guest number for more space on the water: The number of kitesurf beginners and storages for kite equipment is limited, so you’ll always have enough space on the water.

3. Kiting at low tide: Like everywhere in Egypt the water runs out of the Seahorse Bay at low tide. However, experienced kitesurfers can kitesurf independent of the tide in the so-called “pool” in the ocean.

At our Seahorse Bay, we offer special „no-worries packages“, in which everything is included. It doesnt matter if you are a beginner or advanced kiter, with this package everything you need is covered. Also your non-kiting company won’t get bored.

Kitesurfing at Seahorse Bay


Thanks to the large shallow-water area and the stable wind direction the spot is perfect for beginners. There is enough space in the lagoon as the number of students and storage slots is limited. This is why neither beginners nor advanced kiters feel restricted.

The shallow lagoon with sand and the fact that there are more than 70% windy days a year provides ideal conditions for unforgettable kitesurf sessions.
Experienced kitesurfers can kitesurf independent of the tide in the so-called “pool” in the ocean.

We recommend wearing booties due to shells and stones in the water.

Whether you prefer half board, full board or all inclusive, at Seahorse Bay you find it all! From the Kiteclub you can easily and literally go from “bed to board”.  Due to its great variety of alternative activities the Calimera Club is perfect for families and kids. In case the Kiteclub is fully booked and you don’t like the Club-Resort-like atmosphere we can accommodate you in the cozy Seahorse Bay Pension.

Kite Club Seahorse Bay

The kite villa with its spacious terrace is the focal point of the Kiteclub and spreads out over 200 square meters. In addition the Kite Club provides a lovely and large garden with direct access to the spot.


The Kite Club’s generous garden includes a jacuzzi to relax in between your kite sessions. Sun beds and other comfy seating will be awaiting you in and around the kite villa and are of course free of charge. The oriental corner with fireplace and shishas invites to a nice chill-out session.

There’s also a small cafeteria where you can enjoy tasty snacks with non-alcoholic drinks like Egyptian tea. Additionally, there is a reading corner in the chill out area, a climbing wall, satellite TV, and a DVD player for recordings from your day on the water or to watch movies.

In the lounge of the Kite Villa you can find a pool table and a tabletop football. In case you forgot some kite stuff like rash guards, board shorts or other minor but important gear you have the possibility to purchase them in the little shop inside the kite villa.


The eight rooms include A/C, fans (on request), a closet, night table, fridge, satellite TV as well as a hairdryer. Six rooms have their own, fully-equipped bathroom. Two rooms share a bathroom and shower and are a bit cheaper. Depending on availability, the rooms can be booked in single, double or triple occupancy. The blue room accommodates up to four people.

Alternative activities

Included in the package price

Excursion to Hurghada

You’ll head to old Hurghada with a local that shows you how to experience Egypt for real. You can snatch up some good deals at a bazaar and try some local delicacies. Afterwards we will have some drinks at a cocktail bar with live music.

Excursion to El Gouna

Our second evening excursion goes to the tourist city El Gouna. An entirely different evening awaits you. For lots of regular tourists this is paradise – you should at least see it once, just to be able to talk about it. We’ll show you the best restaurants and bars in the marina. You can smoke shisha, chill out and party it up.

Barbecue and bonfire night

One night a week is set aside for the Kite Club Seahorse Bay. We fire up the Barbecue and the bonfire to chill and feast in the garden while chatting about the latest kites and moves. Afterwards we hang around at the oriental corner, smoking a shisha and getting into the right mood for the upcoming days.

Climbing wall

At the back of the Kite Club you will find a brand new three meters’ high climbing wall where you can try out several parcours. Climbing is a perfect addition to kitesurfing and is a lot of fun as well.

Beach volleyball

On the beach of the Kite Club we can set up a fully equipped beach volleyball field where you can challenge the other guests for a nice match.


Stand-up-paddling is the fitness trend of the last years. No matter if you watch the big wave surfers on Hawaii or you go to the flat water river around the corner, SUPs are everywhere.

We have four sets of SUPs at the Kite Club which you can use at any time.


KiteWorldWide guests can get snorkeling gear for free at our Kite Club and explore the close reef.
