Getting Around

Once there you can get around via ferry trip across the lagoon (these cruises run about every half hour), can walk the distance or can hail a cab.

Cab drivers have to be dealt with cautiously. They don’t like to receive a large amount of money only to be requested to give back change. In fact, they may even try to haggle you out of more money, claiming that the meter is broken or any other number of convenient excuses. This is why it’s best to research the price of cab fare in El Gouna so you can be confident of your money spending habits.

What about ferry rides? Ferry rides can be bumpy but they provide wonderful scenery, particularly for a resort community that’s already quite breathtaking.

There is also busing accommodation in El Gouna, courtesy of bus companies like El Gouna Bus Station (and stations like Sidi Gaber), which provide take offs every few hours. If you want to take in the scenery, a bus ride and a ferryboat are two vehicles that can help you relax. Buses are air conditioned and usually come with a hostess trolley service. El Gouna can be reached between the stations of Cairo to Hurghada.

Why not try walking local distances if you have a good pair of sandals or tennies? After all, El Gouna does consist of a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere of beaches, water activity, sporting and outdoor life. Make plans to visit El Gouna so you can get around safely and on time for your next Egypt vacation.
