4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Only had 4 hours on the island, we were late setting off and early returning. The island has nothing on it apart from toilets, umbrellas and a restaurant. If you just want to swim, snorkel and sunbathe, the island is ideal.

I can't explain how amazing the beach and snorkeling was. My photo sums the enjoyment I had in the water.

Do not miss a chance to go to this Island, if you are in Egypt. It is so beautiful. I have been there both in summer and winter, best in summer as the Water is a bit Cold in December. Still great though and a MUST if you are in Hurgahda!
