It's simply a piece of Heaven on Earth , Nature as it should be. Enjoy the white beach and the sunny weather all over the year. Practice your snorkeling hobby and swim with colorful fishes between the coral reef with its spectacular sights. Take your sun-bath and earn the bronze color on your body.

This island you can visit only during the day, the beach is really great with white sand and shallow water.

For those who have not snorkeled in the red sea, this is the most accessible set of islands from Hurghada. be prepared to have over 100 snorkelers fighting for space if your boat arrives late

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.
