“Beautiful Peaceful Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Went here last week as part of an excursion with our hotel in El Gouna. Was absolutely beautiful. The beach is stunning and the water is so clear. There are a few reefs around the beach which you can practice your snorkelling in if you're not too confident before going out on the boat in deep water to see some of the huge reefs and the amazing sealife.
Be careful in the sea though, we arrived about eleven o clock and I narrowly missed a jellyfish when I was swimming about twenty metres from sure. It seemed to be an odd one on it's own and was only about 3 inches in diameter, however by the early evening there were suddenly lots of them very close to the shoreline. They must come in as the sun sets and the evening gets cooler. Apart from that it was absolutely gorgeous, definitely recommend it for a lovely relaxing beach day.
The buffet lunch was varied with rice, chicken, vegatables, salad with melon for dessert and ice cream for kids. Kids had chicken nuggets and chips instead of the buffet dinner. It was all well cooked and really well organised.
Definitely recommend going for the sunset cruise on the way back into Hurghada, really beautiful watching the sun set over the ocean.

“Peace on the Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Totally relaxing - snorkelling - resting up under palm shady brollys. Good meal before departing - Nice slow ride back with a pleasant surprise of Dolphins. recommend for a break away from the Hotel and trips that rush you from site to site, Friends and partner agree this was a good day to sit back chat and enjoy the sea and sun.

“Stunning day here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Wow, what can I say - we had a stunning day here. The snorkelling was fab and the coral was amazing. It is very busy but well worth going. To be totally honest, I loved all of Egypt - it has so much to see, everywhere being different to the other - I want to go again, very, very, soon!
