Just off the carpark facing Gouna river is a peak that breaks on the other side of a rocky outcrop. It needs a lowish tide and a northerly or northeasterly breeze. Locals get some good waves here, although the shark attack on a surfer here has virtually stopped all activity here.
Sharks are everywhere and shouldnt scare you away from the spot cause its a classic wave.
