The bay offers a big shallow area from the shore to a small sandbank; behind the sandbank the water gets deeper – but as long as you don’t leave the house-reef, you can enjoy deep water with almost no waves due to the protecting reef. Outside the reef some swell adds up – on strong days you may take a ride to the outside reefs (Shabrour/Habili), where a small wave may build up. Whenever you get into trouble inside or outside of the bay, we’ll pick you up and bring you back to the sandbank or the shore – either by kite or by boat. And in case the wind drops for a while, the house reef offers many opportunities for breath-taking snorkel & dive excursions. And who knows, maybe you’ll take a discover dive and try scuba-diving?
Located in the far south of the egyptian Redsea coast, Wadi Lahami offers a small kitecenter next to the restaurant a PADI dive-center. Close by is a mangrove area with lots of birds and many reefs for snorkeling.
On the northern top of the bay there’s a diving center, supporting us with their tents and chalets – and imagine, it’s less than a 5 minute walk from the accommodations to reach the kite center, the dive-shade, the restaurant or the beach!
We stay in a nice & very special EcoLodge, close to the kite beach. The Lodge is which is basically an environmental-friendly dive- & kite-camp that offers an English-speaking crew, non-alcoholic all-inclusive board (breakfast/lunch/afternoon-cake/dinner/soft drinks/tea&coffee) and three different types of accommodation to choose from (see image gallery).

If you're a beginner or an intermediate kiter and want to book some private lessons, let us know – we offer a top spot with big shallow area right in front of your doorstep!
In the area around the camp there’s actually really “nothing”. At the end of the bay there’s the closest hotel located and that’s it – so if you’re looking for discotheques, bars, restaurant etc you’ll search without effect in Wadi Lahami. At the kite station Ross offers cool drinks and music, but to be honest: after a long day on and in the water you may probably not want to party all night long…
It’s less then 300m distance from our accommodation to the kite center and the restaurant. In the restaurant all meals are offered at a airy terrace – ocean view and a good view over the kite beach included. All over the area of the EcoLodge water-dispensers are installed – so you don’t have to carry your fresh filled bottle around all the time. The lavatories are next to the main building (consisting of restaurant, dive-center and office) and contain showers. sinks and toilets. All washing rooms are cleaned several times per day.
