“Beautiful Paradise Island”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I had the chance to visit this amazing place on a boat trip from Makadi Bay. This is by far one of the best trips I have been on whilst on vacation. We firstly had 3 boat stops before reaching the island, we were able to snorkel and see the beautiful coral reefs. Also had the chance to see dolphins! The island itself is very busy and of course hot!! The water was so beautiful and clear, like paradise!! Plenty of space to sunbathe and take some amazing photos. I booked the trip through a salesman in my hotel and it worked out to be £30 pp. Totally worth it, must see if visiting Egypt!!

“Amazing!! A MUST trip!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We booked our trip through Mahmaya Tours - they have lots of boats and ours was immaculate from start to finish! I highly recommend them as they take you to the beach used just by them. Amazing .. it was like stepping onto a Caribbean Island .. turquoise water, white sand, not as crowded as other beaches there & plenty of shade & sun-mats for everyone to use. Went for snorkelling trip before lunch - again stunning & not crowded. Lunch was AMAZING back on the Island, facilities were immaculately clean & drinks were not overpriced. Saw another beach used by other operators & were crammed with people with little shade. It was also lovely to sunbathe on the front of the boat .. although there is also plenty of shade if required. Also saw dolphins on our return ... goose-bumps moment!! FABULOUS TRIP NOT TO BE MISSED! Thank you to our guide Fathy also - amazing man.
