Experience Caribbean flair on a Red Sea Island! Mahmya, part of the Giftun Island National Park, is a small piece of paradise just off the Hurghada coast. Swim and snorkel in crystal-clear waters, relax on a white sand beach, and enjoy a buffet lunch.
What to Expect
Start out in the morning on this 6-hour excursion with a pick-up at your Hurghada hotel and then a boat ride to Mahmya Island – a bit of paradise in the Red Sea. If you’re lucky, you’ll see dolphins playing in the water nearby or even escorting the boat!
When you arrive at the beach on Mahmya you’ll be set up with a sun bed and an umbrella. Enjoy the white sands and the warm turquoise water, listen to some music, and leave the world behind. If you’re looking for something a bit more active, take your mask and your snorkel, head to the water and explore the coral reef near the coast.
To discover as much as possible of the Red Sea’s marine life, you’ll head out by boat to the best reefs, which are a bit farther offshore. You’ll have a chance to snorkel and see great corals, myriads of exotic fish, and a loads of other underwater animals and plants.
After returning to the beach, you’ll have a delicious lunch at an island restaurant, followed by more time for relaxing on the beach and maybe a swim. If you like, you can rent a SEA-SPI, an environmentally friendly motorized watercraft that has a glass bottom, allowing you to see the underwater world below.
You’ll return to Hurghada in the late afternoon.
