El Tur Windsurf Holidays Overview

Just 50 minutes from Sharm Airport, it has heavy been known as a very windy spot, but Only recently has a centre and hotel been established. El Tur is in fact the capital of the Sinai, and has barely been touched by tourism. That turns it into a perfect windsurf destination.

There is a moderate climate all year around and as well as having incredible conditions there are unlikely to be more than 20 windsurfers on the water. Catch it before the crowds come. You may well have a small audience as you gybe close to the mosque, as windsurfers are very much a novelty.

Centre Spot

In front of the center, you launch from the sandy beach in very flat water with no shorebreak. You can sail inside the bay, gybing in front of the mosque on the other side. This is the favourite blasting area.

The Swell in El Tur

Take a couple of gybes downwind and out past the point and you are into the swell that rolls down the Gulf of Suez. Normally this is around 1-2 metres high, getting bigger when the wind has been blowing for several days. The swell wraps around the point at the entrance to the bay giving some fabulous jumping.

The Wave Spot in El Tur

A 10 minute drive up wind will take you to a little spit of sand with 2-4 meter waves; this spot is really incredible. At the tip of the sand split the waves are at their biggest but with a reef break; a little further around the waves are little littleer (2-3 m) and break nicely onto the sandy coast.

The wind in El Tur

As with the rest of Egypt, although it's a year around destination the best wind is in the summer when it's regularly bft 5 and above. The wind in El Tur is also super clean giving you the extra security to really push it…

Activities in El Tur

The large coast has a volley ball court and football pitch. The nearby oasis at the base of the mounts has Moses Bath, a thermal spring. This is an perfect place to watch the sun setting over the mounts on Egyptian mainland. St Catherine's Monastery and Mount Sinai are also within easy distance and the drive through the mounts to them is excellent. Ras Mohammed is also nearby. Divers may wish to take a day off the water and explore some of the reefs or the wreck of the Thistlegorm on a trip from Sharm.

Nightlife in El Tur

El Tur is very peacefull and you shouldn't come here for the nightlife! Evening entertainment is organised by the windsurf centre and includes barbecues, surf video evenings and occasional trips into the metropolis of Sharrm.
