Holidays in El Gouna are akin to breaks in Europe's most exclusive seaside destinations...
If everything seems perfect in the Egyptian Red Sea lagoon resort of El Gouna, it's because the town has literally grown out of the sea at the hands of thoughtful developers who have created an intimate and exclusive resort with beaches, hotels and marinas filled with mega-yachts.
El Gouna dazzles in the bright sunshine and the Red Sea gently caresses the islands that make up the resort, which sits within the Hurghada resort area. Located in the East of Egypt, day trips to Cairo and Luxor can be arranged from El Gouna should you wish to explore the soaring monuments that testify to Egypt's fascinating past.
Diving and watersports are popular during El Gouna holidays, as the treasures of the Red Sea are mere moments away. If all you wish to do is swim in the sea and laze on the sand, then you'll find the manmade beaches of El Gouna to be pristine.
Stay in Kafr el-Gouna for a more traditional Egyptian village atmosphere, while accommodation and amenities around Abu Tig Marina are glossy and modern. There are spa hotels to stay in, and plenty of high-end options where your every desire is catered for. Golf enthusiasts might want to stay near the immaculate course.
As the sun sets over El Gouna, many guests choose to take advantage of the “Dine Around” scheme offered by the all-inclusive hotels, which are operated by the same family and add some variation to your holiday dining - and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to discover.
Families are just as welcome as couples, and the red-sand deserts, islands and mountains that surround El Gouna spell hours of fun for all ages. There's also a go-kart track in El Gouna for everyone, including the really big kids in your party.
