First to attract holiday makers was the long sandy shore of Naama Bay, still Sharm's most popular resort, its attractive seafront promenade curving round the bay and lined with bougainvillea and oleander. Visitors flock here in the evenings, drawn to the many shops, fast food chains, restaurants, clubs, bars, discos, 'sheesha' cafés and shopping in the Western-style enclosed shopping malls where duty free goods are always popular purchases.Location

Riding & Learning conditions
we have officially moved to the Regency Plaza Resort. We already had a fantastic teaching and riding spot and it just got better. We are 400 mtr north of the last centre.
Along the beach there is a promenade where you can walk, cycle or rent one of the many electric powered scooters and minibikes, only electric power is allowed. The great thing about the promenade is that it allows guests to choose from many hotels and still have easy short distance access to our place.
Sharm shares the same wind as Hurghada & Dahab with a high percentage of days blowing 20 knots or more.
Water & Air temp are similar to that of Hurghada but generally a few degrees warmer in the winter season.
We have now installed our compressor giving our guests pump free set up. Coming soon we will have our weather station, web cam & WiFi online.
The spot is fantastic offering everything from an advanced rider’s playground to a super safe tuition area. We are based right on the beach where you can slip your board on and go directly out. For lessons once again just walk out into the shallows 30 mtr infront of the school.
Our water is kept flat by a fringing reef that wraps around to the beach. In Sharm we get some pretty big swells outside the reef and at one end of our spot there's a cove where the waves come rolling in. Admittedly not the best waves but for Egypt not bad at all. We feel that the spot is for the more advanced rider who wants to get to grips with the waves, also great for boosting some big airs. In time we will offer a service whereby the spot will be supervised also facilities to transport kit there if the 30 min upwind ride is not your thing.
We have assistants on hand to take care of launching and landing needs.
Starting at the waters edge the water progressively gets deeper. At high tide you’ll find chest deep water 400mtrs from the shore. For the next few hundred meters the water depth is around 2 ½ to 3 mtrs deep before shallowing again as you approach the reef. There are many sandy bottom areas adjacent to the reef where you can easily stand.
The wind direction is predominately north giving side shore winds.
Being in a reef fringed lagoon produces a safe environment thus reducing the need for boat assisted rescue cover. You’ll find the staff at Colona Watersports Sharm keeping a watchful eye on you in the event of needing assistance. In the near future the addition of a rescue craft will be added to the services.
