Looking for the perfect spot to relax for the day?

Whether you’re a homeowner, a resident here to stay, renting a property for a few weeks, or stopping by for a relaxing weekend as a guest at one of El Gouna’s luxurious hotels, you can choose from a range of activities from our assortment of distinct locations to suit your preference for the perfect day at the pool or beach.

With a myriad of pools and beaches available at El Gouna’s hotels, it can be difficult to choose just one, so if you’re looking to entertain the family, planning a celebratory day out for a group of adults, or a romantic retreat for two, you’re guaranteed to have a 5-star experience by following this comprehensive Gouna-guide to pool and beach day usage.
