Snorkeling at Mahmya Island from Hurghada
Egypt Land Travel representative will pick you up from your resort in Hurghada to take you for an awesome day trip to Mahmya boarding one of two Mahmya boats, and sail for around one hour to the island.
Mahmya Beach is on the southern shores of the Giftun Island National Park off the coast of Hurghada. Mahmya in Arabic means “Protected Area”. To protect the coral reef and its marine inhabitants, the boats moor at buoys off the pristine bay, and you will be taken to the shore by smaller boats.
Once you have landed on the island, you are free to snorkel on the impressive coral heads scattered in the clear lagoon, have a walk along the sandy beach, take on other guests at beach volleyball, or just relax on the pure white beach.
A free Wi-Fi available in the Lounge Area on Mahmya Island with Aqua Trampoline for Kids. Enjoy lunch at the restaurant, with seafood and Italian specialties, and later in the day you can enjoy drinks at the bar.
Finally you will sail back from Mahmya Island to the marina where you will be met and assisted then transferred to your hotel in Hurghada for free time at leisure and peaceful overnight stay
Hotel Rating in Egypt:
Hotel Rating in Egypt: Kindly note that the hotel rating in Egypt is not the same as in USA or Europe, so Luxury hotels option or 5 stars are always recommended as minimum in Egypt. As some 5 stars seems like 4 stars or 3 stars according to our clients’ feedback.
The 3* & 4 * hotels aren’t recommended at all as we receive complaints about them.
Travelling by overnight train NOT RECOMMENDED:
We don’t recommend it, it takes15 to 18 hours on a very noisy train. The toilets are not good and smelly. Food is not good in general. Beds: moderately comfortable. Comment from a client: “However, I am 6’0″ (183 cm) tall and barely fit into the bed — anyone taller would have to curl up.”
If you don’t fancy travelling by overnight sleeper train then upgrade to our flight option. Enjoying extra nights of comfort in 5* hotel accommodation. We recommend that you upgrade this transfer to domestic flight. Extra supplement for a 1 way flight and 1 night at 5 star hotels is 150$ per person. Xmas. New Year and Easter supplements apply.
