Beaches & Islands

Have drinks and treats delivered right to your chair at your hotel beach, enjoy cold refreshments and groove to music overlooking wild mangroves or pack your own food and drinks and head to the white sands and glorious isolation of El Gouna's many nearby deserted islands.

Zeytuna Beach



Lively and beautiful, Zeytuna Beach is located on its own island surrounded by the sea and lagoons. A 400m jetty extending into the sea provides access to deeper water and the coral reef plateau. Beach services include towels, drinks and food, bar offering drinks and a light menu, bathrooms and fresh showers. Enjoy beach volleyball, snorkeling, football, dancing lessons and more. Access: Shuttle boat from Downtown and Sultan Bey, or walking via bridges from the Sheraton and Hill

Mangroovy Beach


Located just north of the Abu Tig Marina, Mangroovy Beach has become internationally known as the Red Sea's best spot for kite-surfing. Indulge in this new water sport or simply soak up the sun while enjoying the view. Relax under thatched roofs as waiters bring drinks and food to your sun-bed. Sporting options include kite and windsurfing, snorkeling, beach volleyball and soccer. Look out for beach parties and barbeques in summertime! Beach services include towels, restaurant, bar, fire pits, camping area, bathrooms and showers. Access: A shuttle bus departs from downtown every half hour.


Tawila Island


Enjoy the secluded beach at Tawila, just over an hour from
El Gouna, where you can take a long walk on sparkling white sandy beaches and revel in the island's natural beauty or take a swim in its clear water. The boat ride itself is a joy and spotting dolphins is very common. Charter boats will arrange food and drinks on the beach.

Gobal Island


A little over two hours away, this gorgeous island offers breathtaking snorkeling from the uninhabited sandy beaches. Connoisseurs hail Gobal as one of the most beautiful islands ever! Enjoy lunch on the beach and own an island for a day.



Mahmeya Island
