We spend about 1 and a half hours here, and enjoyed the wonderful colours of the ocean here. There are no sun beds, but there are parasols, and mats to lie Down on on the Beach. It is a touristy place, where boats come and go, but as we were here in November it was quiet enough.

It has the best clean and warm water ever and the best beach it only needs some services like a cafe and some umbrellas to be able to enjoy ur rest times when u r out of water. If you ever come to Hurghada you should come to this island and enjoy the fabulous weather and water. :)

This is really one of the nicest areas in Hurghada to dive. Especially the small gifting drift dive (if there is current) is one of the best to do. Really worthwhile to do at least one time when you are here.
