Wherever you travel in the world it is recommended that you remain vigilant and take extra care of your personal possessions. However, living here for many years we are confident enough to say that we feel very safe in Egypt!
Over the past few years, Egypt has received its fair share of negative media coverage, some of which has led to people being more cautious when considering Egypt for their next holiday. However, over 8 million people still chose to spend their holidays here in Egypt during 2017 and 2018! Why?! Because not only is Egypt home to some of the most interesting ancient sites, a wonderful spot for watersports and sunny most of the year round, it is also as safe as any other popular holiday destination.
El Gouna, in particular, is impossible to compare to other locations in Egypt. With its 24/7 security team, this purpose-built village allows even lone travellers to feel secure walking around and exploring the area.
The city is home to thousands of permanent residents from all over Europe, many of whom have chosen to invest their time and money into making El Gouna a safe and activity-packed haven for visitors from all over the world. Whilst keeping the style and feel of Egypt at the heart of it, El Gouna is like a home away from home. And unlike some other destinations, there’s no dress code enforced so you can be comfortable wearing whatever you feel best in!
