Windsurfing gap year travel tips from Skyscanner

A gap year travel adventure is likely to be an unforgettable experience for individuals looking to get away from it all with an activity holiday.

However, the best destination is a matter for discussion, with Skyscanner offering its own choice of places to go to ensure the best wind or wave experience.

The online flight search facility suggests the Red Sea in Egypt as a good place to indulge in such hobbies as windsurfing, kitesurfing and diving.

Within the region, the Gulf of Aqaba has extensive facilities and perfect conditions for the sports.

The bohemian resort of Dahab is a popular budget stop-off and is significantly less commercial than Sharm el-Sheikh or Hurgada.

A former Bedouin village, Dahab is a windsurfer's paradise due to the flat water.

There are also camel, horse and quad bike rides for those seeking an alternative diversion.

Other destinations recommended by Skyscanner include Aruba in the Caribbean, Fuerteventura and Tenerife.
