Dear Readers,


It’s time to get ready for the holidays! Along with the summer weather comes many celebrations and events that El Gouna is famous for.


While the town is known for its kitesurfing and incredibly blue waters, sports events are no strangers to El Gouna. Find out more about the adrenaline-fueled rally event that took place (p.6), the El Gouna Squash open results (p.16) and the elite polo cup (p.36) throughout this issue to find out why this town is perfect for a wide variety of activities.


Sports were not the only exciting events taking place. Check out the visually appealing “WoMen by the Sea Arts Festival” (p.12) as well as the three-day event Sandbox that is every partygoer’s dream (p.20) to find out how Gounies and tourists alike enjoy the days and nights of El Gouna.


If you are looking to spend a more low-key night, then head to our article on El Gouna’s three breathtaking marinas (p.24) which will give you insight on everything you could do within those areas. Also, check out our article on the new and creative restaurant El Bahr that offers freshly caught seafood with an incredible view of the sea (p.40).


Find out why one of the top icons of El Gouna’s dining scene chose to move her entire life to Gouna in this issue (p.26).


As June was still the host of the month of Ramadan, the giving spirit was still in the air. Make sure you read more about Rotary’s efforts (p.28) as well as how EGIS gives back to the community (p.32).


Wishing everyone a happy summer vacation!
