Spread around a turquoise lagoon on the Red Sea, El Gouna lies in one of the most picturesque locations on the Riviera. Hurghada’s deluxe neighbour, El Gouna is a modern and self-contained seaside resort with luxury hotels, a championship golf course and white-sand beaches. It’s also one of Egypt’s premier diving and snorkelling locations, with fantastic excursion opportunities and plenty of fun sports and beach activities for kids.

Things to do

The resort’s sun-drenched waterfront has a hive of activity during the day. Pick your perfect spot on the picture-perfect beach and sunbathe on the white sand, before taking a dip in the turquoise water. If you’re eager to explore the Red Sea further, why not book a diving excursion and take a closer look? For golf lovers, there’s the 18-hole golf course, set against magnificent coastal scenery.

Memorable adventures are plentiful, too, including deserts safaris on quadbikes and jeeps. Head for the harbour to enjoy a fresh fish dish and all kinds of local specialties. You’ll also find stylish shops in this part of town. El Gouna holidays are ideal for kids too, with mini golf, go-karting and boat trips going on all year.
