Lagoon paradise on the red sea

Head north from Hurghada along the east coast of Egypt and you’ll find El Gouna – a collection of small islands connected by a network of canals and lagoons. Between the miles of soft, sandy beaches and the quiet coves there’s plenty to love about holidays to this modern, cosmopolitan town. As a private, gated resort it's got an exclusive feel to it, too, as well as an abundance of luxury hotels and a pretty marina that's usually home to at least a couple of yachts. 

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to how you spend your days here. Grab a patch of sand on the pristine beach and work on your tan or make a splash with some water sports – from snorkelling to kitesurfing, there’s plenty on offer to keep water babies happy. See if you can sink a hole-in-one on the championship golf course or explore what the town has to offer. Meander through the cobbled streets of the town and you’ll find designer shopping, fine dining, and picture-perfect views around every lagoon.

Your El Gouna questions, answered

El Gouna is a great family holiday destination. Between the beaches, the water sports, and activities such as mini-golf and go karting, little ones will be very happy here. 
El Gouna enjoys fairly consistent year-round sunshine. It’s hottest in July and August when temperatures tip into the 30s, but warm weather starts in March and lasts well into November, so it’s great for catching a bit of winter sun. 
It's just a 30-minute drive from the airport, so you'll be in full holiday mode in no time. 
There are two forms of transportation for getting around the resort – TukTok and Limousine. Both have set prices, and staff in hotel reception can usually help you to arrange. 
Most of the nightlife here is based around the hotels but wander through the downtown area and you can find bars and night clubs. Some of the bars and clubs here require a reservation so make sure you check before you head out. 
With over 100 restaurants dotted around the coves, you'll have plenty of choice when it comes to food. El Gouna is a relatively modern resort that’s well set-up for tourists so you’ll find international restaurants in town, alongside places serving up authentic Egyptian eats if you fancy expanding your horizons. They cover off everything from casual meals to fine dining.
