El Gouna (Arabic: Al-Dschuna, the lagoon, Egyptian-Arab: Il-Gunais) is a man-made tourist resort, developed and owned by Onsi Sawiris, dating from about 1990 located on the Red Sea in Egypt. It is 22kms north of Hurghada International Airport. As is quite common in Egypt, the area is sealed off by armed guards who only allow tourists and workers into the area.
El Gouna specialises in watersports, including scuba diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, waterskiing, parasailing and snorkelling. There are two main beaches, Zeytuna Beach located on its own island and Mangroovy Beach. A network of canals allow many houses to have their own strip of beach, even hundreds of metres inland. These are crossed by small stone bridges in the downtown area.
It has a hospital, a decompression chamber and a small private airport for charter aircraft.
There is a small museum with some 90 exhibits (including statue replicas) which was opened in 1996. It also has also an exhibition hall of contemporary Egyptian paintings by Hussein Bikar.
