El Gouna holidays take you to a place that is almost the dictionary definition of a beach paradise. Located on the coast of the Red Sea, El Gouna boasts over 6 miles of golden beaches that are dotted with truly beautiful lagoons, for that extra bit of private relaxation. A lesser known holidaying area in Egypt than the likes of Sharm or Hurghada, El Gouna still feels like an undiscovered little corner of the world in so many ways.
Holidays to El Gouna also come with a measure of culture as the resort features a Downtown area that preserves the traditional Egyptian way of life while also accommodating tourists. Take a walk down the cobbled streets and your mind will be wandering back to the old days before you know it!
El Gouna is equipped with a lot of leisure activities to please those who get a little restless sitting on the beautiful El Gouna beaches. From diving to watersports to shopping and eating facilities to a full sized golf course.
The resort benefits from a convenient location, meaning it is close enough to take day trips to visit some of the Ancient Egyptian wonders, such as the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and the temples in Aswan.
Of course, the weather can make or break a beach holiday, so if you’re considering your holiday time based on the likely sunshine and temperatures, here you go:
