Soma Bay Weather

Soma Bay holidays will see you basking in temperatures of around 20° Celsius in January's 'cold' season, rising well above 40° Celsius by midsummer. There’s also the fact that you’ll be in one of the world's driest places, meaning that winter or summer, the only way to get wet is diving into the warm waters of the Red Sea - or into the pool!

The golden sands here clash vibrantly with the blue of the sea and the lime-green of the acres of grass that constitute the golfing clubs all around. On holidays to Soma Bay you’ll find yourself looking out over the water to mountains across the shore, which the sun sets slowly behind every night. For some other great vistas of your chosen resort, the Red Sea mountains beckon, which you can scale by jeep or on camel for some panoramic views of the seafront.

Things To Do on Soma Bay Holidays

Whether you’re after some windsailing, 18 hole golf or windsurfing, the waters here are perfect for you, and the balmy coastal breezes stave off the constant heat. But it’s for world-class diving that Soma Bay holidays are rightly famed, with translucent blue waters home to more exotic and eclectic marine life than anywhere else!

Landlubbers can explore the ancient churches of St Anthony and St Paul nearby, with their ancient tomes and libraries watched over by Coptic monks, visit the Roman ruins at Mons Claudianas or go on a day trip to Luxor with it’s sphinxes and pharaonic tombs at the Valley of the Kings.


There are some fantastic shops in Hurghada to explore, from street stalls selling antiques, T-shirts and local dishes to the gamut bazaars, perfumers and souvenir shops. Come here in February for the manic mayhem of the fortnight-long International Festival, geared more towards tourists but retaining an exquisitely Egyptian cadence with it’s great street dances and parades. Away from suburbia, the mountain-dwelling Bedouins have villages nearby where trips can be arranged to learn bread kneading, camel riding and desert survival tips.


Soma Bay holidays also offer you the cream of Egyptian hospitality: downtown Hurghada is the centre of the Red Sea Riviera’s late-opening nightclubs, frequented by top DJs plying their latest tunes, as well as charming pool bars, cocktail bars and English-style pubs. Try the Old Town, El Dahar, for some fine international cuisine, or the hotels themselves, for late-opening bars and ebullient Egyptian dancing.

Don't forget that you have the choice of El Gouna for a late night out on the town or nearby Makadi Bay for a chilled out night watching the sun set from the vantage point of a cool beachside bar.
