we went here mainly for kitesurfing, unfortunately was a bad experience from all points of view. The accomodation it's only acceptable at Lotus apartments, the bungallows should have been long closed and renovated, they are a disgrace. The bedsheets and blankets in the bungallows have stains, had to send it back several times.
For kitesurfing, the place was a complete no no. Although Magawish it's the first openned in Hurgada in years 70-80', it's by far the worst for this sport. The kite beach it's down the valley which makes gusts present, we're talking between 20 to 35 knts ! The hazards include ships and touristic boats on the surfing channel, the rescue service is well organized by the spot but instead of taking you from the launching point, they take you by boat 1km away, where the 1 floor kite spot was built (?) I wonder what was on their mind not thinkingof the impact this building will have on kites...
For kitesurfing we had to take a daily taxi to El Gouna, 25 minutes one way.
The staff was alright, food plenty but repetitive, in one word they really should close down and use all that huge land and beach to build something more attractive.
