An hours boat trip from Hurghada. The island has beach beds, restaurant, bar. Snorkelling was disappointing didn't see any fish, even on the organised trip from the boat. The trip cost £55-00 including lunch, which was a little overpriced considering what we got.

Clean, big area, not full of guests, only Mahmya boats aloud with limited guests per day, Mahmya using very good quality masks and fins for snorkeling! many different places to lay or sit under the shadow, not like crowded and only sun area in Paradise island. You will spend a lovely day there!

Go here! it is beautiful. Make sure you take your towels as no sun loungers and take your snorkels. You can get drinks and ice creams from the only bar. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
