The resort is ideal for superior scuba diving and snorkeling with some of the best dive sites in the Red Sea accompanied by a fully equipped dive center.

The resort location boasts some of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the Red Sea and panoramic views of desert mountains and blue skies. In summer, a dry breeze keeps the climate comfortable and temperatures moderate. While Egypt has become a popular destination for divers eager to experience the magic of The Red Sea, the spectacular dive sites of Soma Bay still remain relatively uncrowned, allowing vacationists to discover the area's ship wrecks, coral walls and underwater gardens in peace. Ras Abu Soma and Gamal El Kebir diving sites are nearby a chain of isolated and breathtaking reefs with dramatic drop-offs and plateau teeming with characteristic marine life. Other water sports abound with world-class windsurfing, sailing, and kitesurfing. Perfect for a golf holiday, Soma Bay features one of Egypt's most spectacular 18 hole championship golf course named “The Cascades”.
Soma Bay is a perfect place from which to take day trips and excursions at some of Egypt's many historical sites that are in close proximity. Luxor in the Nile Valley is only three hours away by car from Soma Bay. Monasteries of St. Paul and St. Anthony are hidden deep in the mountains and one may still observe rituals that have hardly changed in 16 centuries. Mountain of Porphyry was an extensive Roman mining operation of the pinkish-purple Porphyry, which was used in temples, baths, sarcophagi and statues. The Fortress of El-Quseir is an Ottoman fortress dated from the 16 century. It has been largely restored, and will soon be the home of a museum containing displays on local history, Red Sea mining, monasteries and trade. And the last monument being about Soma Bay is Wadi Hammamat. It is famous today mostly for its ancient graffiti.
