The island is 45 minutes from Hurghada. We made a tour including snorkeling, lunch and free time on the island. The island is very beautiful and looks like a carribean island. It is a small island therefore it is full of tourists. But the organized tour includes also reserved sunbeds. The lunch is okay but nothing speacial.

You can see the fish under the water. We visited the Mahmya last year and this was our second time. Will go again for... More

Didn't go on the snorkelling trip part of this excursion due to the young children but had a perfect day spending it on this... More
