Mahmaya Island is one of the must see places when you are in Hurghada. Long sandy beaches with crystal clear water with turquoise color! We took 1 day snorkeling cruise, went to 5 different places and it was awesome! 1 thing i didnt`l like is the annoying photographer... but thats egypt, ppl sell heheh

This island is beautiful! The whole day was amazing and the snorkelling around the coral topped it off. The food was brilliant, could not fault this excursion!

Amazing .. it was like stepping onto a Caribbean Island .. turquoise water, white sand, not as crowded as other beaches there & plenty... More

Simply, one of the most beautiful places i have ever been to. Saw Dolphins on the boat ride out & then went snorkeling by the coral. The coral was simply breathtaking.
