Had a day trip to this island that also included a boat trip and snorkeling trip. The island is well organised to look after visitors. There are wonderful sands leading into gentle water where you can snorkel in safety and see some wonderful marine life. A boat trip not to be missed

We were promised an amazing island but in reality it was very windy and not that much to do other than sunbathe.the views from the top were to die for but the snorkeling let it down. Food was provided but basic. Not worth the money I'm afraid. Try the royal cruise it's far far better and passes the island so... More

Giftun Island trip is great for the reefs and snorkelling, but Giftun Island, despite being beautiful, was like a cattle market and you can only spend 1 hour max there.

A very nice, relaxing, and enjoyable place. You can have a day on the beach, relax and have a meal, or you can have a drink at the bar. The beach there is wonderful, the water clear and the sand soft and clean. The food is tasty and of good quality. A must see if you are in Hurghada, and... More

Don't go to Mahmya. It's a desolate hovel with nothing to do or see. We went briefly to Giftum island as part of a snorkeling trip and were really glad we didn't do the 'paradise island' 4 hour trip.

Stopped here for lunch during dolphin house snorkeling day. Be careful at the bar, they never seem to have "change" when you pay for drinks. can be costly, £3 for a tin of coke. Prices alway just over 50 egp or just over 100 egp, bet they make quite a few extra pounds with that old trick. Glad lunch was... More
