Absolutely beautiful place! So relaxing, we went here on Holiday earlier this year and we went on a trip to Mahmya Island from our hotel in Sahl Hasheesh. Everyone needs to go on this trip, it is fantastic, beautiful crystal clear water, great food, delicious lemon drinks and someone to think of nothing else but peace!

A little bit of paradise - white sands, clear warm seas and fish to see whilst snorkeling. A little pricey but with lunch and a separate snorkeling trip included it was well worth it overall.

This is by far the best swim you're going to have if you're staying in Hurghada or Gouna, it's definitely worth the trip. At 250LE a person (for Egyptians, for foreigners it's a different fee), you get a full day (10AM-5:30PM) on the island, including a 30 minute boat ride taking off from the Sheraton Mahmeya marina. you can pay...

Absolutely Island surrounded by clear blue sea and your are able to snorkel from the beach. We didn't know you had to reserve a cushioned area so we had to make do with mats and our towels under a shade which was fine. Although the cushions looked much more comfortable. The sand is very hot so you will require something... More

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it - however we don't think you were actually on Mahmya. In the morning our boats sail from Mahmya Beach Marina directly to Mahmya where you spend the whole day - with the option of going midday for a snorkeling excursion by boat and return to Mahmya again. We serve an open buffet... More
