Relaxing, beautiful sand and some good snorkelling even for complete beginners as you can see lots of sea life snorkelling off the beach.

This island is so beautiful and we will visit hurghada again so we can come here. Lovely white sand, clear seas for snorkelling. There is a bar and a restaurant, shade is made from palms. Although there isn't much to do here it was lovely to just sit and look around at the beautiful scenery.

Must Visit Place. Accessible through trips that are organised by the diving centers that are found in all the hotels of Hurghada. It worth what it cost.

Dear sjamieson8, Thank you for your post, but most probably you was an another place, not at Mahmya, because our company is working only with contracted tour companies and we are not working with diving centers. Best regards, Mahmya Team More
