El Gouna shows us a different side to Egypt. Framed by palms and huddled along the shores of the Red Sea, it's known for its lagoons, bright coral reefs and sandy beaches. Any given day can see you diving with dolphins in the clear blue lagoons or sweeping through the sand dunes on a desert safari. A bustling gastronomic scene provides plenty of indigenous restaurants and more modern eateries, while the marina is dotted with bars and shopping options.
No visit to El Gouna is complete without exploring its thriving underwater world. Jump aboard our preferred partners boat and explore the treasures of the Red Sea, boasting everything from a large, friendly dolphin population to a rich maritime environment of colourful fish and corals. Our recommended routes and stops are tailored to different yearnings: shipwrecks for experienced divers, beautiful coral reefs for the avid snorkeler, or deserted beaches for those simply wanting a relaxing day at sea.
CASA COOK X DUOTONE
The lagoon city of El Gouna is renowned for its superior water sports conditions thanks to shallow waters, spacious beach fronts and year-round excellent winds. Taking advantage of its prime location on the cusp of the Red Sea, Casa Cook El Gouna is the first of its kind to open its very own kiteboarding center in partnership with Duotone – one of the world’s leading wind and water sport suppliers.
Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned professional, the kiteboarding hub offers a series of classes with qualified coaches using state-of-the-art equipment.
The space itself has been handcrafted to echo Casa Cook’s signature design ethos – contemporary and simplistic, punctuated by clean lines and bursts of tropical jungle. It’s a beach lovers paradise, right in the heart of the Egyptian desert.

No more than a few kilometres from the glitz and glamour of El Gouna, bright lights and heavy traffic give way to rolling hills and golden plains. Mountains with jagged peaks are framed by the seemingly endless desert dunes of the eastern Sahara. It’s a side to El Gouna that is often left unseen, but for those who take the time to explore its sheer vastness, it’s a side that’s hard to forget.
Miles of open desert, burning rays glistening on the sand, long, wide stretches of white sand beach and the turquoise waters of the Red Sea ebbing against the coast – there are few things more memorable than exploring the striking El Gouna landscape on horseback.
