Top 5 Things to Do in Safaga

Just a 30-minute drive from the tourist hot spot Hurghada lies the smaller coastal town of Safaga.  Don’t let the laid back atmosphere fool you, Safaga is jam packed with plenty of wetsuit-filed fun.  Let’s take a look at our lineup:

  1. Snorkeling

Due its size, Safaga creates limits on the amount of divers in the area.  What does that mean for you?  It means a more personalized underwater vacation amongst hundreds of astoundingly colorful species and gorgeous Red Sea locations, including unrivaled exploration of underwater sea wreckages like the Salem Express and the jaw dropping blue and purple coral formations of the Panorama Reef.

  1. Stand up-Paddle Boarding

Unlike traditional surfing where you sit and wait for a wave, stand up instead on a human-sized board and paddle yourself out into the sea.  Calm water, perfect weather and some friendly dolphins can make this an almost spiritual experience.

  1. Shark Diving

Visit any one of the world class diving centers and spend the night on a boat with other adrenaline-junkies at special hand-picked locations, like Sha’ab Sheer, for a chance to swim with the saw-toothed sea predator in its natural habitat.

  1. Windsurfing and Kitesurfing

Test your strength and finesse as you rip across the water’s surface by taming the wind like a mighty Spartan on his chariot.  And if you choose to go windsurfing, aim for the sky and revel in the thrill of flight!  Just make sure the water’s still under you before you decide to come back down again.
