Holidays in El Gouna, Egypt

Arabic for "the lagoon", El Gouna is a sophisticated beachfront resort town built on a series of islands and lagoons connected by canals. It lies 30km north of Hurghada, around a 45 minute taxi or coach ride.

A favourite weekend escape for high class Egyptians and wealthy Europeans, with its stylish Kafr El Gouna / Abu Tig Marina area of boutique shopping, restaurants, bars and nightclubs, it’s particularly attractive to couples and families with younger children.

Specialising in water sports, including scuba diving, water-skiing, kite surfing, parasailing and snorkelling, it’s also famous for its golf course, which was co-designed by Fred Couples. Other attractions around town include a small aquarium, go-kart track, paintball arena, tennis courts, horse stables and a football stadium.
