The ‘Venice’ of the Red Sea has a lot more to offer than a cosy atmosphere and beautiful settings, plenty of shopping opportunities in an intimate surrounding. In fact, El Gouna has advanced to one of the major kitesurf destinations in the Red Sea.
The kite areas are situated north and south of the small city of El Gouna, with probably better conditions to the north, with the famous Mangroovy Beach at the northern tip where beginners, advanced or professional kiters will have fun in this knee-deep lagoon which provides best conditions for all levels.
The large beach provides a perfect and restricted in-water kite area, always under constant surveillance. Here, the wind comes predominantly from northwest, this is cross-shore, from the left and sometimes turning to the north-east, usually slightly stronger in the summer months with an average of about 4 Bft.
Even with stronger winds, there are hardly any waves close to the shore. Watch out for very strong winds with 6 Bft as it might get a little choppy.
