Soma Bay Holidays

Make a getaway to Soma Bay located on the coastline of the lovely Red Sea Riviera in Egypt and enjoy a holiday like none you have experienced before in this all inclusive community. Soma Bay is easily accessible from the Hurghada International Airport which is not too far away and the fact that it is a mere three hours away from the large town of Luxor, makes it easy for one to take a day excursion. Soma Bay is oozing with enchanting beaches wherever you go and not to mention beautiful natural attractions. The weather in Soma Bay is also welcoming as it favours a summer-like temperature with low humidity throughout the year while winters are cool and tolerable.

If you are looking for the history of Soma Bay, then you would have a hard time accessing this information since there are several theories that are out there. What is known is that the city was once known as Ras Abou Soma with the Arabic words Ras Abou meaning cape and father. The name Soma was never defined although most speculate that it was named after a hallucinogenic plant that grew in India.

Soma Bay is luxurious and a classy place to visit for a holiday with your family or spend some quality time with your spouse. Many would be amazed by the variety of things that they can get to see and do here. Your ultimate relaxation is just an appointment away at the resort’s spa which is touted as the top spas in Egypt. The resort also boasts of having an 18-hole golf course. Because of being surrounded by water, Soma Bay is the perfect place for scuba diving as well as other sports which include wind surfing and kite surfing to name a few. Kite surfing is actually big in Soma Bay and is the most popular place to go kite surfing since the winds are higher than in other resorts on the Red Sea coastline. In addition, Soma Bay is also known for having several great diving sites and diving centres that are equipped with diving gears and instructors who can teach the travelling beginner.

If diving is not for you then you can always play a game of tennis or squash at one of the resort’s hotels. Sightseeing is three hours away in Luxor and one can go there to visit the ancient gems such as the Valley of the Kings and Queens and the temples that are there.
