Go kiting to Egypt: Why choose this country?

Egypt is one of the most popular kite destinations for those who want to progress thoroughly on flat water turquoise lagoons, sunbathing, and stay in comfortable hotels with average quite good service and at relatively low cost. Of course, large hotels aren't quite authentic but deliver a good quality-price ratio for an easy-going kite vacation. Its closeness to Europe makes it a kitesurfing landmark for those who prefer not to travel too far to find kitesurfing conditions all year round. In Egypt you have a lot of choices of kitesurfing spot and conditions: Safaga, El Gouna, Marsa Alam, Soma Bay, Sharm El Sheikh...

Pros: Good quality-price ratio for accommodation and kitesurfing. Easy to reach from Europe with budget flights.

Cons: Resorts are normally big chains with not much of real Egyptian flavor. The political situation isn't always stable so better to get information before visiting the country
