MarinaS

Drop anchor in El Gouna, where three marinas and a pristine harbor town offer seafarers the Red Sea’s best in service, comfort, and style.

Boasting multiple marinas, comprehensive services, and an aesthetically unified harbor town designed by Italian architect Alfredo Freda, El Gouna has quickly become a favorite docking place for pleasure craft traversing the Red Sea.

El Gouna multiple marinas
1. Abydos Marina

El Gouna’s second marina has a capacity of 40 vessels and harbors many of El Gouna's diving boats. It offers dry dock and repair services, with a ship lift for vessels up to 19 meters, and it has a diesel fuel station, electricity lines, channel-6 VHF, and a maintenance center. 

2. NEW Marina

The New Marina, an expansion of the Abu Tig Marina, was added in late 2009  catering to the rapidly expanding mega yacht market by offering 109 additional berths for vessels up to 60 meters in length

A designated international point of entry, Abu Tig is in a league of its own among Red Sea marinas both for the high standard of services it provides as well as for its matchless backdrop: a harbor town that is not only architecturally praiseworthy but also offers El Gouna’s most exclusive shopping and dining. A number of lodging options are also available in the marina, which houses hotels ranging from intimate inns to a four-star beachfront establishment.
