Astounding reefs to explore, amazing kite and wind surfing conditions, never-ending beaches of black and gold sand dunes, a cultural day trip to Mons Claudianus where lie the remnants of a Roman quarry, the peace and serenity of a start-up touristic destination… that’s what Safaga is all about.
Once a small port town, exporting its abundant phosphate to the rest of the world, Port Safaga has grown into a major touristic hot-spot on the Red Sea! And a world-famous water-sports destination; it has even hosted the 1993 Red Sea World Windsurfing Championships; kite and windsurfing in Safaga is really something else!
Safaga enjoys an all-year-round pleasant climate, but the best times to visit Safaga are definitely the months from February to June and September to November, when temperatures range between 25 C and 30 C. Divers will also be tempted to come in the hotter months of summer, when water temperature reaches peaks of approximately 28 C.
People come to Safaga from all around the world to enjoy the sun, the sea, and the exciting water activities on offer – which include diving the Abu Kafan Reef, the Panorama Reef, Ras Umm Hesiwa and Sharm El-Naga – but they also come for the curative properties of this paradisiacal Red Sea destination.
Indeed, the black sand beaches, the town’s clean and healthy climate, and the highly saline waters of the Red Sea make Safaga a perfect holiday destination for those who suffer from diseases such as psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis. Safaga is said to be one of the best locations in the world for curing psoriasis. Book a wellness holiday at the Menaville Resort & Spa in Safaga to experience the curative properties of the town’s environment.
