​El Gouna

An Egpytian tourist resort ​located 20km north of Hurghada. Situated on the Red Sea Riviera, the warm climate year-round makes it a great place for winter sun, where kitesurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling and SUP are some of the popular sports to practice.

Activities

The UCPA centre at El Gouna is a great place for learning or improving your sea sports in great weather, even during winter! As a specialist centre for scuba diving and kitesurfing, you can be well accommodated regardless of your level or experience. But if you fancy just relaxing, there is a fantastic infinity pool by the sea where you can put your feet up.

Local Town

A purpose-built resort town because of its natural beauty and unique climate, El Gouna is a modern town which holds on to its Egyptian heritage. Continuing the town’s aim of being a zero-waste town, and pursuing the objective of being carbon neutral, El Gouna is the perfect destination for the eco-conscious traveller.

UCPA Centre

Instead of having a purpose built UCPA centre, in El Gouna UCPA use the Dawar El Omda Hotel. Rooms are for two persons and are en-suite, with a small balcony or terrace. The infinity pool is a great place to relax after a day of sport, or to spend your free time when you have a day off from sport. If you want to explore in the evening, there are some bars and restaurants just a few minutes walk away.

Testimonials

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • The food provided was up to a very good standard for all meals with a soup starter available every dinner followed by two or three hot meal choices, a salad bar and a variety of tasty deserts and fruit.

  • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!

  • Imagine moules mariniereier, steak (cooked how you like it) and paella just to name a few options during our week and you get a picture of how well fed you will be at UCPA.

  • Describing the UCPA is difficult. Not because there is a lack of adjectives to adequately convey the amount of fun you’ll have while you are there, the friendliness of the instructors, the quality of the food...
