RodeZeeduikersThe Red Sea coast

Within a period of just under 20 years, the Red Sea coast has become a popular destination for its summer weather and warm sea water all year round with a vast array of water sports but above all, the unprecedented coral reefs and marine life.
All along the Red Sea coastline are numerous bays and reefs with breathtaking corals. Extremely beautiful are the protected national marine parks.
Almost Egypt’s entire coastline is a protectorate.
Hurghada which is located on Egypt’s mainland coast has an international airport and is only a few hours away with direct flights from most European countries. Hurghada is connected with regular domestic flights from Egypt’s main cities.

Soma Bay

Far from the mainstream tourist area, the Soma Bay Peninsula, 45 kilometers south of Hurghada, offers some excellent five star resorts with their own private beaches, an 18-hole Championship link golf course designed by Gary Player, a Thalasso wellness center besides of its golden beaches and superb water sport facilities. Soma Bay’s house reefs as well as the coral reefs just a short boat trip away, provide easy access to enjoy the abundant marine life and impressive coral formations.

The overriding consideration at Soma Bay has been to minimize the impact of tourism development on the site's ecology. In all cases the objective has been to preserve and protect the ecology of the peninsula and the sea. Recycling of waste waters, the use of salt tolerant grass, and solid waste management, are only a few of the practices which make Soma Bay a model for environmentally friendly tourism development.
