Egypt's Red Sea
Holidays in El Gouna
Built on a series of lagoons and islands, the beautiful resort of El Gouna has been likened to 'Venice of the Red Sea', and has been carefully constructed to complement the setting of desert, mountain and Red Sea in which it is based.
El Gouna is about 30 minutes north of Hurghada, the area's biggest resort.
Holidays in El Gouna offer guests a myriad of leisure options - a marina, shops and arcades, a selection of restaurants, cafes and bars, an 18 hole USPGA Championship golf course and go-kart track, as well as a range of watersports.
Resort facilities also include a private airport and a hospital, with a Hyperbaric chamber for divers.
El Gouna operates a 'dine-around' scheme, which allows guests staying on half board or full board basis to sample a variety of different restaurants around the resort, where they receive a set amount of credit towards their meal.

Customer comments on El Gouna
"El Gouna is a fabulous resort packed with facilities and amenities for either an action-packed or relaxed holiday. The resort is safe and hassle free with good transport links.
The Marina was a particular favourite destination to eat and relax with no pressure to buy goods. We are really pleased we chose El Gouna!!"

"The planners have worked hard to develop El Gouna so that it has the intimate atmosphere usually found in the Med.
It has been very quiet here in Feb but I expect that it would be a great place to walk around and rest in bars & restaurants in the summer.
I have particularly enjoyed walking around the town, it is so safe, interesting and fun crossing from island to island on the many different bridges."

“I don’t believe it is right to develop land without regard for the environment, and it’s not fair to ruin it for future generations.”
El Gouna has been officially recognized as Egypt's most environmentally-friendly holiday destination, with the Ministry of Tourism in Egypt referring to El Gouna as “becoming one of the world’s top green destinations by end of 2011.” With this in mind, El Gouna management has worked hard in cooperation with local hotels, businesses, residents and visitors to maintain, protect, and preserve its unique environment. The town’s environmental programs and grassroots environmental organization paved the way for several awards, including the Green Globe.
