Our camp is located in the town of El Gouna, a coastal small city of the Red Sea, Egypt, just 30 mins away from Hurghada International airport. It offers great conditions for kitesurfing – wind 70% of the days per year, warm and flat waters, and sunny 365 days a year! It is a great location to get started with kitesurfing, but also for quick progressions for intermediate/advanced, due to stable winds and the calm Red Sea, making it the choice of many pro riders looking for a training winter place.
In Winter is reccomended to bring a wetsuit, while in summer a lycra is all you need in the water.
Our camp is in the iconic spot of Element Watersport, host of a World Cup Tour event in 2016, in El Gouna, Egypt.

There are approximately 18 hotels to choose from in El Gouna. A good one and at a reasonable price is ‘Mosaique’ hotel, the closest hotel to the beach which also offers a free shuttle bus service every morning and afternoon to the center.
Other popular options are:
Ali Pasha, Fanadir (Adults only), Three corners Ocean view (Adults only), Captains Inn, and Dawar el Omda, a lovely boutique hotel that comes very cheap.
El Gouna is a very small town, so any hotel won’t be anyway very distant to the spot (and all transfers are included anyway in the price). The best option is to check on popular sites, like booking.com, expedia.com etc etc – there are normally there great prices for specific dates, and some hotels may be much cheaper than others in specific dates.
And we are of course more than happy to help you out choosing the best accomodation for your stay.
