It's a sandy island with no shelter from the wind. Just sand and long beaches and some company that sells overpriced drinks.

This island was quite a revelation and certainly worth the time to travel to. Very pleasant staff on hand to help and serve. Excellent food and the icing on the cake for us was seeing a pod of dolphins on our return boat trip to Hurghada. As soon as they were spotted the captain turned to boat so we could... More

Went on a snorkelling trip here, and it was lovely-instead of using our travel company we went direct with the diving centre on the beach and saved ourselves £20 each plus.The island is paradise although we only had an hour there ( would have been nice to have a whole day ) snorkelling around is very good with some nice...

It´s a nice place, it´s also called Egyptian Tahiti. Nice, but time is time and you already (in Hurghada) will also find more beautiful beaches...

Worth the trip, unfortunately it was very windy and the sea too rough to snorkel from the boat. But a lovely little spot with a reasonable restaurant and good photo opportunities.

A trip to this Island was unforgettable. Beautiful white sand beach with coral reefs for great snorkelling. Mahmya has a beach bar, restaurant, toilets and diving equipment store. Boat trip to one of the reefs for snorkelling was amazing. There were beautiful parrot fish, trigger fish, butterfly fish and many more. Its a day to remember.

We booked a deluxe day trip to Mahmya and from start to finish we had a fantastic time. From stepping on the yacht in the morning to returning whilst the sunset it was a great experience. Mahmya itself is stunning, white sand, clear blue sea (even the toilets were spotless which for a uninhabitated island was an unexpected bonus).As we... More
