beautiful crowded no shade

This place is a must see , but go as early as possible . There is very little shade, and the beach gets very crowded which in my opinion takes the good out of it

The island is beautiful, but having to lie on mats on the sand - especially when beds appear to be provided for locals - is not my idea of paradise. Additionally, I had been looking forward to snorkeling, but the masks etc provided looked like they were used - and am not sure how they might have been cleaned. The... More

Trip to the island while staying at Premier Le Reve. Easily reached in under an hour. Absolutely gorgeous sand, some sea life to see, but better to go on a short boat ride to the corals to see more while snorkelling. Very relaxing...but VERY hot!

We visited Mahmya Island on a day trip. Great boat ride out to the Island and fantastic clear waters for swimming and snorkelling. We went back out on the boat for some snorkelling on the coral reef which was a great experience. Lovely lunch and plenty of it. The whole day was really well organised.
