Kite holidays with family
Kite holiday or family holiday? Why not both!:)
We know how difficult it is to find a place that will satisfy the entire family. Great spot, good and safe place for kids with sandy beaches. El Gouna is a perfect place for active people, private city only 30min ride away from the airport, offering lots of attractions and possibilities. One of the easiest kite spots in the world with a rich infrastructure of kite schools. It’s a city of attractions: huge complex wake park, go-karts, lagoons, beautiful canals for SUP cruising and a floating Aqua Park – great place for the entire family. Take a catamaran cruise, scuba diving or even desert tours with spending a night in a mountain cave – trust us, this is something you want to experience (those skies full of stars, wow…)! Kids will definitely not be bored!
