Orange Bat Island is one of the places that you should visit in Hurghada.. Why ?!

Everything is beautiful , relaxing and experience new things .. The trip is in the yacht travel away from marina in the early morning ( starts from 8 am ) .. you have 2 stops in the middle of red sea for snorkling to see coral reefs and diving deep in the water then you reach the island and settle there for 2 hours enjoying the clear water and quite place there is a restaurant in the sea and swings which is so adorable you could feel that you are out of your mind and thats what every one need from a paid trip , Yes or not ?!

The trip cost you 350 egyptian pound at least (almost 35$ ) , I advise you to bring some snacks , sandwiches and drinks with you , the food bar there is so expensive . Don’t forget Seasickness Cereal took them before 1 hour at least from sailing . Don’t forget your sunscreen and glaces . You could bring your own snorkeling stuff if you don’t like the things used by others . Don’t forget your towel and make up for photoshote in the island and on the boat . You could bring a flash memory containing songs you like .

Be sure to bring everything in one hand bag to be sure that you don’t waste a thing .

There is a photography in the trip he is expensive ( 300 egyptian pounds ) but worth it , you could try to take photos with your friends unless if you are couples and need to interest every moment .

I’m really happy with their service. We had a kind of last minute request for the Orange Bay tour with snorkeling and they kindly arranged everything for us very quickly. The boat was great, friendly and helpful crew, lunch was a highlight (fish, beef, chicken, rice, pasta, salads... free drinks all included). It was my first time snorkeling and the guide made me feel safe and helped me enjoy it to the fullest. I can only recommend it!! Thanks a bunch for all :)

Phenomenal experience. Very well arranged itinerary for a very reasonable price. The staff was very entertaining and helpful, always ensuring you have a great time. The food was great too. The island itself is dreamy. The boat makes stops for snorkeling. I personally don't swim and had to wait in the boat for a while. Even then I had a good time. I would just advise you to bring a book if you can't swim. Or if you are braver, they will be by your side while wearing a lifejacket if you venture into the sea.

Just perfect.
I ve always booked Orange bay during my stay in hurghada.
This Time 3 times(!!!) during my 11 nights stay in jaz aquamarine. I Know, a bit too much... Smile smile
I ve booked my trip from Mr Eslam, he organizes private tours on The island. This Time was Elizeea boat, s bit big from my stand point, but service on board were great, food ok, a lot of activities and the stop on yhe island(2hours)was relaxing.
Thank you, it was a nice trip, and I will always return with pleasure.

Orange bay/ giftun island (paradise island is also on giftun island) is an amazing place, an absolute must if visiting hurghada/ Egypt. White sand, blue crystal clear ocean. It gets very hot on the island, we were using factor 20 at the hotel, but needed 30 on orange bay. A few spots to take good picture such as the swings, the hammocks, and the tables. Very good for instagram pictures, as they do make a good shot, especially if visiting with your partner/ spouse....

Side note/ minor con, make sure you take mosquito bands and insect spray/ repellent as they can get a bit much...

All in all thought, I would recommend Orange bay to anyone visiting Egypt and would 100% visit again.

I've just returned from a amazing holiday in Egypt & I did a couple of the excursions one of them being Orange Bay.
It was absolutely gorgeous!!! Like paradise 😍 The sand was beautiful & the water was crystal clear.
You could literally walk all the way to the reef.
I've been to Egypt twice now but this was the first time I'd been here & I will definitely be going again.
There's huge like beanbags to sit/lay on in the shade. There's a bar to buy drinks from whatever you prefer, pop, alcohol etc. Perfect for sitting & watching the gorgeous sea with.
I would definitely recommend going on a trip here when your in Egypt. You will love it. ❤

Went here on an excursion with Sinai Excursions- Booked via Facebook- All our excursions were with these guys! This is a must!!

Orange bay: Beautiful island, In the middle of having revamp when we went (Other side)
Warning: There is ALOT OF FLIES!! When relaxing under the umbrellas this can get very annoying!
It can get very busy here but there was plenty of space.
