“Excellent place a must see.”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Loved it so much we wanted to stay the night. In fact they should really consider a 24 hour stay on the island. snorkelling off the beach was lovely but the trip to the reef for was utterly breath taking . The inclusive buffet lunch was excellent & drinks really reasonably priced.
We can 100% recommend this trip

“Paradise”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Saw wild dolphins as we approached in the boat. A beautiiful island feeling like paradise. Nice food at the restaurant, clean bathroom facilities & plenty of shade on the beach. The water was so clear & peaceful. Stunning.

Went here as part of a trip, 1 and a half hours was enough. Snorkelling excellent. Food & drinks available if needed.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Mahmaya Island a very nice place to be at. Beautiful beach with white sand, the beautiful Red Sea and a view at Hurghada. It is possible to buy drinks, snacks and ice. Here you can sit in the shadow. Normally you stay here for about one hour. Take your towel and suncream with you. Enjoy.
