The Southern Red Sea, Egypt -specifically Hamata,”Lahami Bay” -is a well-known spot for wind sports.It is a sandy bay with a large lagoon covering several square kilometers, one of the biggest lagoons you can imagine – it’s just super big.
You can stand pretty much everywhere on the beach starting your watersports activities without swimming and the water is around 22°C to 26°C.
The conditions are really good! No current and flat water make it suitable all levels; Freeride, Freestyle and even for beginners.
The 3W / Surf&Action Center Lahami Bay is located in the Lahami Bay Resort and equipped with latest Fanatic boards and North sails. The center offers toilets, shower and changing rooms. A special highlight is the surf bar, where guests can sit in the shade without missing the action on the water. Of course there is also a rescue boat for emergencies.
The wind comes slightly side-offshore from the left and gets stronger during the morning hours and often remains constant till evening. The huge lagoon in front of the center, with a reef in the north-east, offers wonderful flat water, the first 20 meters even shallow water – perfect for beginners such as advanced windsurfers. For those who want to enjoy the big waves outside the reef (up to 2 meters high) there are some places where it is possible to cross the reef, but as it is not possible to see you from the center, we always suggest to only go out there with a group of people.
BANANA House Reef is one of the best and most famous snorkeling locations. Within fewer than a hundred meters from the beach you will find countless coral barriers, reefs and pillars at depths from 2 to 10 meters that extend out to sea in kilometer-long formations.
