About El Gouna

Under the silhouettes of sharp edged mountains and bordering the crystal waters of the Red Sea lies El Gouna, the region`s most exclusive destination. Built on clusters of islands surrounded by turquoise lagoons, El Gouna spreads over 11 kilometers of the most pristine beachfront.

El Gouna seems to have something for everyone including secluded beaches and exclusive hotels for those seeking the getaway holidays, desert safaris and the world`s best diving for the more adventurous, endless in-house entertainment for those traveling with the family, and a great night life for the wild at heart. El Gouna began with a romantic vision: friends, boats and a passion for the sea.. What started out as a dream and a small marina evolved into a fully comprehensive resort, with Egypt`s most luxurious villas, internationally renowned hotels, a wide range of picturesque restaurants and a vibrant, bustling village. And yet from a resort, El Gouna was to evolve even further – into a town with a life and soul of its own.

El Gouna is no longer simply a tourist destination but a town attracting visitors and residents from all parts of the world. Private businesses are thriving, from the boutique and restaurant owner, to those investing in El Gouna`s industrial sector which includes a brewery, a winery and a water bottling company. Although difficult to imagine, El gouna`s growth has been carefully planned with beauty and functionality as its top priorities. In spite of having grown into a self-sufficient town resort with powerful infrastructure and extensive community support facilities, El Gouna has done so with great care for its surroundings. El Gouna was recently awarded the “most environmentally friendly resort in Egypt” for its endless efforts in this area.
