There are five sandy beaches in El Gouna; Buzzha beach, Mangroovy beach, Three Corners Hotel beach, Marina beach and Zeytouna beach.

Found on its own island is the Zetouna beach, featuring a 400-metre jetty which provides access into deeper water and the coral reef plateau. This beach has good facilities including towels, drinks and food, bathrooms and fresh-water showers.

To the north of the Abu Tig Marina is the Mangroovy beach, a well serviced beach particularly popular for kite-surfing. Buzzha beach is located on the northern end of Mangroovy beach, again with good facilities and a great spot for watching the kite-surfers.

Moods beach has a private beach club and is located on the northern side of the marina, as well as the usual facilities it features a massage parlour on the beach. The secluded beach on Tawila Island is accessed via a boat trip, and is a great spot for snorkelling.
