Soma Bay is a coastal resort on the Red Sea in Egypt, 45 km south of Hurghada International Airport. The ten million m², self-contained community of Soma Bay is a peninsula surrounded on all sides by the sea. About 5 km in length and 2 km wide, the peninsula is accessed via a 7 km private road through a single controlled entry gate.
Soma Bay features some of the best Red Sea diving with its house reef and a variety of nearby diving sites. The five resorts (Kempinski, Sheraton, Robinson Club, The Cascades and The Breakers Diving & Surfing Lodge) also have access to an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course and golf academy designed by Gary Player. Soma Bay also features one of the largest spas and thalassotherapy centers in the region. Watersports are particularly popular due to the prevailing winds which are perfect for windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing.
