Spot Description

A vast shallow water lagoon in the desert paired with a Disneyland-like little town with a pretty Marina - that's El Gouna. Wind is almost always blowing and you can focus entirely on improving your kite skills, as there is not much else to do. Just a 4h flight from Europe to Hurghada and another 30min drive from the airport to the Mangroove kite beach makes it the perfect getaway for European kiters.
