“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Mahmaya Island a very nice place to be at. Beautiful beach with white sand, the beautiful Red Sea and a view at Hurghada. It is possible to buy drinks, snacks and ice. Here you can sit in the shadow. Normally you stay here for about one hour. Take your towel and suncream with you. Enjoy.

“Great Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Would certainly recommend this trip, beach fabulous. Had lunch there, then we snorkelled in the afternoon. The boat trip was excellent great for sun bathing on top deck, we was very lucky not many on the trip when we was there in March.

“Great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Would highly recommend taking a trip to this island, on the way to the island we saw a group of dolphins in the sea which was nice. we was told it's the best islands In hurghada (hurghadas paradise) Really is beautiful and we'll worth the money (£55 each) the sea is lovely and it's a natural beach where there was little crabs that you could pick up too! They also had a sea trampoline. We chose to go out on the bigger boat for snorkelling which I would again recommend they take you out 15minutes away from the island this was also great all the staff was friendly and as there was so many of us from our resort we was staying at we went as a whole group of English people which was also nice! We Would have done a second trip to the island If we had the time! All in all I'd recommend this to anyone who visits hurghada. We booked our trip with thomson
