Holidays In Soma Bay Overview

Soma Bay is a luxury holidays resort on the Red Sea Coast in Egypt at 45 kilometres south of Hurghada International Airport, the ten million square meters, self-contained community of Soma Bay is surrounded on all sides by the sea. It boasts year round sunshine and mild temperatures. Unique to Soma Bay are its white sandy beaches and panoramic views of desert mountains. The resort offers a combination of a high standard of hotels and a quiet relaxing location. The resort is split into 2 areas: Abu Soma (to the south of the main bay) and Soma Bay (the main resort on the north side). Soma Bay is a secluded spot for those wishing to just relax in luxury if not on the water. However, there are a variety of excursions, tours and day trips to the interior of this fascinating country. Egypt is probably the oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago. This Gift of the Nile, as described by Herodotus, boasts a longer recorded history than any other country on earth.

Diving In Soma Bay


The house reef at Soma Bay stretches from the east to the west of the peninsula. With a diverse marine life and an abundance of corals it is truly a delight for all experience levels. A lagoon lies at the front of the reef and provides sheltered waters ideal for training. The house reef boasts a fantastic array of marine life with sightings of large pelagics like barracuda, turtles and eagle rays being commonplace.

Diving Seasons In Soma Bay


The hottest time of the year is July and August with air temperature of over 30 degrees C. The coolest time is January with the temperature at around 20 degrees C. Rainfall is negligable and it is invariably sunny but breezes can be cool.

Nightlife


Soma Bay does not have a town so this is a hotel based holiday. Safaga is the closest town but has very little to offer in the evenings, so if you feel the need for bright lights, then head for Hurghada.

Entry


UK / EU passport holders should have a full 10 year passport valid until at least 6 months after date of return. Other passport holders please check with Egyptian Embassy. You will require a full Egypt visa for entry into Hurghada. The easiest way to get it is on arrival at Hurghada Airport. It can also be obtained in advance from the Egyptian Embassy.
