Dahab Lagoon kite spot in Dschanub Sina

Africa kitesurf spot in Egypt

The kite spot Dahab used to be a small hidden hippie village in old times, then windsurfers took over for a while, and now it is a gold mine for kitesurfing in Egypt. Kiteboarding in Dahab is very popular due to the strong wind, a variety of spots all within pretty easy reach, tons of no wind activities and a great vibe in town with a plethora of bars and restaurants. Kitesurfers love the Dahab lagoon because of the side shore breeze, the shallow warm water and because there is plenty of room. You can launch your kite from a sandy beach, and the lagoon works for kitesurfing at high and low tide, although you should be careful in certain spots at low tide.

Summer water temperatures range from 23 to 28 degrees Celsius, while winter temperatures range from 19 to 25 degrees Celsius. The winter from December until February can get pretty chilly as Egypt isn’t built for the cold, so you’ll want a wetsuit if you visit in these months, a...
