[sg_popup id=”2″ event=”onload”][/sg_popup]What is El Gouna?
Firstly, El Gouna or simply Gouna is Arabic for The Lagoon. الجونة is what is looks like in Arabic. El Gouna is a high class resort on the Red Sea ‘invented’ by Samih Sawiris, an Egyptian-Montenegrin billionaire. The lagoon – a manmade lagoon – cuts it’s curvy map into the shore and offers many of the houses the opportunity to have their own strip of beach – even
100m inland! Parking cars outside your house is so last generation. Just park your boat in front of your patio! In short, El Gouna is a resort town made for tourists, high class Egyptians and the residents that live and work there. Managed and part owned by Orascom, it is an extremely well maintained, well managed and safe haven for those wanting to enjoy the delights of the Red Sea.
What’s on offer?
Being on the Red Sea Riviera, El Gouna plays a string part in offering the best of the best when it comes to diving and snorkelling! But son’t stop there! Parasailing, kitesurfing, waterskiing and wake boarding are but the best of the many watersports you can participate in! 18 Hotels, a
