Another reason to enjoy Red Sea holidays this year

The bustling resort of El Gouna is getting ready to introduce a brand new attraction: the world’s largest cable water park.

Due to open in July 2013, just in time for summer holiday season, the El Gouna Watersports Complex will feature facilities for water skiing, wakeboarding as well as new pool facilities. As if you needed another reasons to enjoy Red Sea holidays this year?

The 90,000m² area, known as the Sliders Cablepark will feature two parks, for beginners and youngsters to get to grips with wakeboarding in the red sea. This is where sliders and kickers come in. (No, we didn’t really know what they were either!) It will be the place for water skiers, wake boarders and wake skaters to really put their skills to work.

If you prefer to relax, the Malibu Beach Club will feature two large sun terraces, a beach club, pool and spa, while in the evening the club turns into a party zone with DJs from all over Europe.

And the best bit? Thanks to the wonderful weather in El Gouna, the complex, aided by floodlights will stay open all year around.

Opera in El Gouna

We may not always enjoy high drama on holidays, but this is a little different. The charming Egyptian resort of El Gouna has announced plans to show the world famous Metropolitan Opera.

Basically the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts its performances directly to cinemas around the world. It has already been a huge success and is now coming to El Gouna.

Right on the Red Sea, El Gouna is the first location in Egypt, outside of Cairo to opt for this high-tech live stream of fantastic opera. For anyone looking for winter sunshine, it’s a perfect blend of spending all days on the beach by day and indulging in a fantastic cultural excursion by night.

Sherina Sennar, Public Relations Manager of Orascom Development Destinations Marketing Department told us: “With 10km of secluded coastline, unspoilt lagoons and pristine islands enveloped in year-round sunshine, El Gouna is the perfect winter-sun destination and now we have the added dimension of live-streamed opera in the town.”

Already announced performances include Il Travatore, Carmen and Othello. At just ten euro each, it’s a bargain night out in the sunny Red Sea surrounds. The newest season runs until April 27, so there is plenty of time left to decide what to see.
