Why I visit My City: I visit El Gouna due to the fact that it is sunny 360 days a year and that it has amazing kite boarding conditions!
My first memory: First memory was coming here in 2009 for a kite-boarding holiday. I fell in love with the place straight away; sun, wind and great vibes!

Best place for a first date: Le Garage in the Marina is great because it has a beautiful ocean view.

My secret place: If I told it wouldn’t be a secret, would it!
My best advice: El Gouna is the perfect place for water sports, so I would go here if you were interested in that. Otherwise there are beaches for chilling out, as well as great restaurants and nightclubs. So anyone could enjoy a nice holiday here, even though it’s best for water sports enthusiasts!
Taxi or other local transport? You can grab a tuc tuc easily anywhere in the city for 1 dollar.
Keep away of: There is not much you have to stay away from in this town, as everything is very clean and safe here.
Where next? My next destination will be somewhere warm and windy, probably Boracay in the Philippines or somewhere else in Asia.
