Dear Readers,


As the winter goes into full force and we near the festive season, we take a look at an interesting year in retrospect.


We start the issue by taking readers on a musical journey filled with combination of nostalgia and new hits as we discuss the most memorable tracks played in the different venues of El Gouna this past year (p. 6).


Moving through, we introduce a new organic dining experience tailored for all seafood aficionados at the Grand Lodge (p.10).


Then we share the eventful story of the ‘Cross Egypt Challenge (p.18)’ that took bikers on a journey from Alexandria all the way down the Nile River to Abu Simbel.


Halloween this year, as always, was a blast in El Gouna make sure to get a look at the creative spooky costumes on show through out the events of the night (p.28).


And finally we took at the sad events surrounding the destructive storms of late and how the resourceful rotary club took measures to help locals through a difficult period (p. 34). On behalf of the El Gouna Magazine team, I would like to take this chance to wish our readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year. See you in 2017!


As always, enjoy life as it should be,

The El Gouna Magazine Team
