There are many things to do in El Gouna, especially if you’re a lover of sand and water. This resort town is one of the primary diving and snorkelling destinations in the whole of Egypt, boasting impressive shipwrecks, beautiful coral formations and lively underwater life.
The majority of El Gouna’s attractions can be found in and around the Red Sea, though the relaxing and pampering vibe that you’ll find embedded around the town is another great reason for visiting this holiday destination, with many great spas allowing you ample time to recharge your batteries.
Beyond the water there are countless outdoor pursuits and attractions to keep you occupied during your visit to the town, with families, couples and solo travellers bound to find themselves occupied until they catch their flight home.
Relax in El Gouna
Pampering yourself is a key aspect of Gouna holidays, whether it is in a wonderful beachfront restaurant, upon the soft sands of a delightful beach or in the spa or swimming pool of a top 5-star resort – there’s always time for a bit of rest and relaxation in Gouna. But not everybody will be satisfied by a holiday spent in a good book or on a beauty sleep catch-up session, and fortunately there’s enough activities going round to suit all manner of holidaymakers. On top of the water you can enjoy some kite surfing, windsurfing, parasailing and water skiing, while in and below the water you can try your hand at snorkelling or diving, absorbing the majesty of the resort’s immense reefs.
Not all the action and adventure is restricted to the water, with some great entertainment avenues found on dry land if you need a break from the sun, sand and sea. Play a round of golf for another source of relaxation, or head to the local go karting track, before a game of tennis or a session of paintballing – all great activities for holidaying families. You’ll also find the opportunity to explore some of Egypt’s attractions further afield, starting with the stunning pyramids found in Giza. Expand your insight into the ancient history of the country with a visit to the immense Valley of the Kings in Luxor, before descending on one of the best diving destinations in the whole world, in the form of Sharm el Sheikh.
