A great place to visit with family and friends for a nice day at the beach with excellent food! A must visit when you're in Hurghada as the sea is breath taking there most importantly.

We loved this trip totally worth the money through Thomsons, we had a lovely boat trip there and then we spent a few hours there. You have sun mats and sun shade enough for everyone and we had a lovely lunch included too. Drinks are reasonably priced. We loved the snorkelling amazing fish and beautiful coral, the sea was so...

You travel to the island by boat and you can see the fish as you travel from the front of the boat. You jump off the boat into the sea or you can go down by ladder. Snorkelling was excellent loads of bright coral and fish to see.

This trip is overpriced and definitely not worth 100 pounds for 2 people. We spent most of the day travelling, only 45 minutes snorkelling ( only got around about 15-20% of the reef) and hardly got a chance to relax on what would be a beautiful island if they didn't bring so many people to it. This trip was the... More

Clean beach and water, snorkelling around the reef was excellent! The staff were very helpful, telling us when and where we needed to meet. The restaurant was nice - shame no free drinks were included, as outside food and drinks were "forbidden". Overall a highlight of the holiday.

This island is a must go while you are in Hurghada you have to go by their boats from the old marina and spend the day there enjoying the amazing beach, food and music.

Although it looks like there's very little in the sea here, get your snorkel on and take a look. I saw my very first puffer fish here! The island is divided into distinct areas and this part certainly had a lot more class the round the corner at what looked like a public beach. We came to Mahmaya on a... More
