Sol Y Mar Soma Beach

At the Sol Y Mar Soma Beach, the pair of huge pools that curve around the hotel’s grounds are just the warm-up acts. The real star is the pirate-themed splash park with slides and tipping buckets. Plus, sunbathing spots don’t end at the pool because loungers sprawl across the sand down by the sea.

For meals, the main restaurant dishes out global grub for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll also have seven watering holes for evening drinks. After dinner, you can watch the evening show at the amphitheatre.

Overview of Soma Bay

You really have to see the desert landscape of Soma Bay to appreciate how beautiful it is. It’s in a serene location away from the action, but it still has a few luxurious hotels like the Sol Y Mar Soma Beach.

When you choose Soma Bay for your holiday to Hurghada, you’ll discover some of the best scuba-diving and snorkelling spots in the Red Sea. It’s a location that’s popular with divers of all levels and it’s also home to the largest kitesurfing school in Egypt.

Things to do in Soma Bay

The Sol Y Mar Soma Beach is pulled up against a strip of shortbread-coloured sand. If you fancy getting active rather than soaking up the sun, you won’t have to paddle far before you reach prime snorkelling territory – there’s a fish-filled coral reef just offshore.

It’s also easy to mix relaxing beach days with day trips because the hotel-run shuttle bus can whizz you to Hurghada City. After a 45-minute drive, you can potter between bazaars, shops and cafes, or bag a sea-view table for dinner at the glamorous marina.

You’ll have some of the best beaches in the world on your doorstep in Soma Bay. You can enjoy relaxing days, learn a new hobby and soak up the buzz of the city.
