“Hot, Hot, HOT”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We stopped here as part of a snorkel trip so thankfully only had an hour. It is really HOT with no shade unless you are paying to use the services of the cafe there. It was also very busy with what seemed like hundreds of people posing to have photos taken in various poses so not a relaxing visit.

Very unusual and pretty so glad to have experienced it but would not go back

“Paradise indeed”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Mahmaya Island is one of the must see places when you are in Hurghada. Long sandy beaches with crystal clear water with turquoise color! We took 1 day snorkeling cruise, went to 5 different places and it was awesome! 1 thing i didnt`l like is the annoying photographer... but thats egypt, ppl sell heheh
