Not worth going all that way for, the snorkelling is better off the jetty at the hotel, but a nice day out, not worth the money though

We left the Marina at Hugharda by speed boat with our guide Waleed Awad and about 45 to 60 minutes later arrived at the island. We paid the extra and had our own seats and shaded area for the day in front of the Resturant. We were then taken to a reef for snorkelling which was good and then returned... More

Great food, good bar at less than UK pub prices, beautiful beach with shaded and sunny areas, clear water and good snorkelling. The optional snorkelling trip to an offshore reef is well worth it.

This is so worth doing, pure white sand crystal clear waters and very, very relaxing! free drink and lunch included as well as the chance to snorkel to your hearts content. If you want a ideal day away from your hotel than this is the trip to do! And we saw Dolphins! What more could you ask for?

WOW This island is amazing, white sand and clear blue sea it's definitely worth visiting. The staff are very friendly but it does get fairly busy there.
