Kitesurfing in Egypt

+ 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
+ From bed to board: 20 meters from your room to the spot
+ Holiday destination for single travelers, families and couples

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 villas have been opened. Due to the perfect conditions here, 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 belong in 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 a 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 are limited. This is why neither beginners nor advanced kiters feel restricted.

The shallow lagoon with its sandy bottom, joined with 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.
