Lovely beach & very relaxing day. Loved the snorkelling Food could have been better. You could go out on a boat trip from here to see much bigger fish & turtles. Good value for a day out. Sea lovely to swim in. Friendly people running the island.

A comfortable boat trip to the island lasting about an hour, Mahmaya is beautiful, surrounded by beautiful blue sea, the sand is white, great facilities including Scuba diving & an excellent Restaurant, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. The Island is not inhabited, but each day boats ferry holidaymakers there. A must do trip !
