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 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.That´s why El Gouna became my city in Egypt.
