El Gouna is the best kiteboarding spot for both professionals and beginners. There is no more beautiful place for this activity in Egypt. It’s just about wind and weather in El Gouna, you won’t find those big waves as in Hamata here. Whether riding, cruising, jumping, or surfing waves kitesurfing gives you an exhilarating opportunity to enjoy the sea.
The Kitesurfing clubs are open all year but the best months for the activity are June to September when windy weather is the most likely. But you should be aware of August being sweltering hot.
