A young resort area located on the Abu Soma Peninsula, 40 km from Hurghada International Airport. There are no settlements near Soma Bay, only hotels, shops, bars, restaurants and other tourist infrastructure surrounded by desert, mountains and sea. White sand beaches stretch along the southern and western shores of the Abu Soma Peninsula, while reefs surround the northern and eastern sides, where the underwater world and clear water create suitable conditions for diving.
In Soma Bay, the sun shines all year round, so the holiday season here lasts both winter and summer. The average winter temperature is 20C and the summer is 30C. It rarely rains here, and the summer dry breeze creates favorable climatic conditions.
The development of the coastline began in the mid-1990s. This coast was originally deserted and deserted. This is what attracted investors — luxurious beaches, clear sea, untouched underwater flora and fauna, and remoteness from the noise of Hurghada with its motley and multilingual public.
Soma Bay has some of the finest sandy beaches in the Red Sea. Diving centers will attract not only experienced divers, but also beginners diving with scuba diving, because the coastal waters are a great place for diving. Not far from Soma Bay is the Ras Abu Soma coral reef. The reef itself and the sheer wall descending to a depth of 25 m are interesting here; you can also dive to a depth of 35 m, where there is a cave that is covered with soft corals. In these places there are glass fish, barracuda, mackerel, squid, stingrays. Windsurfing is possible on the coast of Soma Bay. The best wind conditions are observed during the summer months.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy scuba diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, tennis, squash and many other sports here.
It has one of the best golf courses in Egypt.
Thanks to the location of the resort, Soma Bay is a great place to explore the treasures of ancient Egypt. From here you can take bus or car excursions to the major cities of Egypt: Cairo or Luxor. In the immediate vicinity of Soma Bay are the monasteries of St. Paul and St. Anthony, as well as the quarries of Mons Claudianus and Mons Porphyrites, from where the ancient Romans mined granite and porphyry for the construction of their monumental structures.
