Water

Type:
Shallow, Flat, Small wave
Hazards:
Reefs, Mole
Quality:
Crystal clear
Best Tide:
High tide

The water is very blue up to green, there is a small tide and with low tide you have about 10 cm of water higher than the reef. So watch out when you cross it, always at full speed otherwise you damage your board. The water is like a mirror (very flat), outside you can get wind waves of 1 meter, but not breaking.

Beach

Type:
Sand
Size:
Big
Hazards:
None
Beach Users:
None

The beach is besides the surf center and the beach is very large, so plenty of space to launch. Sand all over the place.

Wind

Best Months:
April, May, June, July, August, September
Wind Type:
Thermal
Best Direction:
N
Main Direction:
N, NW, NNW

Wind is strong mostly in the morning and at noon, in the afternoon it can maintain its strength and stabilize or it can drop. In the morning it is slightly sideoffshore and if that is the case rather gusty, around 11am it changes to sideonshore and more stable. Best direction is sideonshore (North). The strength is relative as the direction is more important, as soon there is Northerly direction in it you can add 1-2 Bft to the forecast, due to Hurghada's geography. So watch the direction and then the strength. Season is in fact all year, although April till September are the best months (although can be very strong wind up to 8 Bft).
