Lovely coral and lots to see. Nothing to dislike. A good value for money trip and a stop at Paradise island. Staff on boat worked hard and were good fun

This beach is where we went on our way to the snorkeling trip we were on. It was very very busy, and quite honestly, i didn't enjoy the time we spent there. However, others enjoyed it.

The island itself is nice to see, but do not expect nothing special. On the other hand whole excursion, traveling with boat, and snorkeling were great :) We went with local agency and with very funny local guide (Magdy) :) Most of travelers were Egyptians which was very interesting and nice experience for us :)

The beautiful beaches that made me think I was in the Carribean. The water near by is so blue it's like looking at the sky. Truly a beautiful breath taking place to visit.

This Island needs a clean up! Hopefully people will start to clean up the beach and reef since the reef is almost dead and the island full of plastic bottles, full diapers (really!) and more crap. I do think tourist and Egyptian people should learn more about the consequences of the waste they leave behind! Please GREENPEACE start a CLEAN... More

Beautiful island. good beach and nice underwater world. But, on the other side, a lot of tourists take this tour and there are a lot of people every day.

The trip was very nice, but the when we went in the island, too much people were there on the same moment, and no shade! The snorkeling was nice!

Most people visit this 'paradise' on a day trip combined with snorkeling. You are dropped on an island with no shelter from the sun. It can be very crowded and noisy when groups of tourists are herded from and to the boats by the tourguides..... not my cup of tea. If you love the sun and like to swim in... More
