SNoRkEl SitE: El GouNA
Situated 25km north of Hurghada on the mainland Egyptian Red Sea coast, El Gouna is a self-contained tourist
town built on 10km of coastline. It offers access to excellent diving, but also some top snorkelling spots with its
sandy shallow beaches and fringing reefs. For some extra special snorkeling, it’s best to jump on a boat because
the chance to see dolphins is well worth the ride.
