We took the complete package for our day at Mahmya Island, the boat trip, lunch and snorkeling. Everything is well arranged and co-ordinated smoothly. There is enough time to lie on the beach and/or swim and snorkel before the trip to the reefs to see the underwater sights. Back again to the island for a simple but adequate lunch and... More

One word to perfectly describe this island: Paradise!!! You have to go there, it's a perfect spot for snorkelling or just relaxing and the beach. Wonderful clear crystal blue water, beautiful coral and colourful fishes.
