I used to go to the Magawish when it was quite smart in the early 90s, (windsurfing back then) then stopped using the Magawish around 2005 when it was very tatty and smelly, can't knock the spot at Colona watersports, bang on the beach right in front of the Magawish,
great for windsurfing, kite boarding and now I use a kite foil board, it would be great for this as well as it's deep a few yards from shore,
only down sides for me would be the lack of waves which are needed for maximum foil enjoyment, and the fact my wife won't go there now after all the security scares.
Shame, as I have many happy memories of holidays in Egypt since the mid 1980s (always sailing)
its hot, very hot, mostly too hot to walk on the sand in bare feet, once on the water it cools down and you don't notice the heat at all, but a walk along the beach in no cooling wind is torture without head cover or sand shoes, 40c can be cool on some days in summer. on windless day its best to stay poolside at the hotel so you can keep dipping in every 15 mins to cool down,
phew! I am getting hot just thinking back to it.
sunbathing on the beach requires a full size beach brolly to keep you shaded.
