Wadi Lahami – a dual Scuba Diving and Kitesurfing Destination



Wadi Lahami is one of the only places you can dive the world-famous reef system of Egypt’s Fury Shoals from land. This small and remote village provides the perfect opportunity to escape from life’s pressures, and enjoy peace, tranquility, and diving that will take your breath away. The diving is suitable for all levels of experience, with some of the best examples of coral formations in the world.

A stay at Wadi Lahami offers guests a unique experience with its original tented accommodation dating back to the 1990s when the resort first opened. There have also been the recent additions of Deluxe Chalets with air conditioning, and a refurbished kitchen, restaurant and dive shade.

The naturally stunning location is the perfect spot for kitesurfing due to its flat water, large bay and soft sandy lagoons. The Kite Centre has recently been refitted offering a top-class service with a relaxed intimate vibe.  Oonasdivers offer holiday packages for beginners, experienced kitesurfers and those wanting to combine scuba diving and kiting.

Kitesurfing allows you to surf in, over and out of waves where you will learn to harness the power of the wind to jump and propel yourself across the water, and when there is no wind jump on a RIB and dive the pristine offshore reefs of the Fury Shoals. At the Kite Centre you will find the Yellow Penguin Bar along with a welcoming fire pit where you can relax and chill out after a long day kiting and diving.

Oonasdivers Kite and Dive Packages are designed for the perfect combination of both activities, and bespoke options can be arranged upon request.
