A GOOD DAY OUT

A good days outing. Fair to good snorkling and a clean beach. Restaurant food was OK but nothing to write home about.

It is very nice to visit, but only if it is not too crowded. Wonderful water and silky sand. Great for snorkeling too!

Was a decent trip. Good snorkelling and always great weather. Food wasn't too bad. Worth a visit if you go to Hurghada.

What a beautiful spot in the middle of the red sea! Mahmeya is a small island with amazing services. You can snorkel, eat and drink and be merry! Words cannot describe how beautiful it is not to mention superb service and delicious food. The owners are extremely environmentally conscious, which is a rarity in Egypt! It is worth every penny...
