If you are in Hurghada you must take atrip to this beautiful island. Trips include snorkeling lunch and cold and hot d drinks on the boat . It really is beautiful and they usually stop at two or three spots for snorkeling. We go to hurghada often and always do this trip when we are there .

Visited this island on the snorkelling trip we went on, the sea was calm and the snorkelling was excellent. We were left to our own devices on two separate occasions and then had a buffet provided for us on the beach (which was amazing!) highly recommend it.

Visited 2x during holidays to Hurgarda. Lovely plac but very busy and not enough time to relax. Boat trip was great and staff took care of us. Took our 7 year old son who was allowed to steer the boat :) Would recommend but be prepared for crowds

Charming sandy beach, with a bar, good place for relaxation, but prices are much exaggerated, due to the fact that it is an island, and this is the single place there.
