Owner description: Totally inspired from its natural surroundings, Mahmya is an eco-tourism haven bordered by virgin blue waters awaiting exploration and a white sandy beach inviting relaxation. Accompanied with fine food, great music and a fun crowd, Mahmya’s an exotic escape that will change your idea of the perfect day in the Red Sea and give you memories that will last forever!

a short boat ride (very professional crew, well maintained boats) from Hurghada(40 mins) gets you to the amazing Mahmya. A private beach with its own bar, toilets, lunch facilities and some amazing coral reefs, white sand and clear waters.

The weather wasn't amazing the day we went but we still loved it, there's something to be said for drinking a cold beer sitting on a cushion on the beach staring out to sea.

It was busy the day we were there but not overly so.

All boat rentals offer a short trip to the island and it's totally understandable as the place is really nice. The islands themselves are not too spectacular, still nice combination of rock formations and beaches, but the best is nearby in the water. The reefs are still ok, maybe not as well preserved as 20 years back, but still easy accessable. A good 1-2 hours stop during your day boat trip is highly recommended.

I didn't think the snorkelling was any better here than at the hotel, but i did think the food was better
