These 5 Unmissable Spots Are The Best To Chill At During Eid

As Eid approaches, Cairo and Giza’s citizens often seize the opportunity to leave the two cities’ loud and chaotic environments and visit a calm coastal city. So, we brought you 5 perfect destinations to chill at during Eid!

5- El Gouna

Known for its modernity and perfect sandy beaches, El Gouna is the perfect location to de-stress at during the holiday. It’s a small, luxurious, and lively town that combines the vibrant nature of Cairo with its serene aura.

Make sure to catch Nooriyah at Necelle for Eid al-Fitr block party on April 12th!

Naguin Sawiris will also get behind the DJ booth at Club88 El Gouna on April 11th!

However, as inviting as Gouna beaches are, we strongly advise you to remain close to the shore, as news has reported the sighting of a mako shark circulating the Red Sea waters twice in 72 hours!
