Lovely island
Nov. 2021 • Friends
We done a family trip to Mahmya Island. It was an all day trip, but thought it as a bit expensive for what we got from the trip.
The beach was fantastic and the food was good too.
But I just thought a little expensive for what we got from the trip.

Organises Mahmya beach tour
Nov. 2021 • Family
Beautiful beach! If you are interested in snorkeling also take the boat to the reef as you can’t see much from the beach.

Horrible Parking
Oct. 2021 • Family
No parking organization. Very bad management. We stayed stucked 2 hours with kids waiting for cars’ owner to get out ! The « head » of security didn’t helped at all. Rude and helpless people. What a shame.

Best beach in Egypt
Aug. 2021
At first we really pondered if we should go snorkelling at Mahmya, but in the end we agreed that it was definitely worth it. The beach is so magnificent and beautiful, we really enjoyed it. The life under the sea is so vivid and colorful, it's really breathtaking. Also the food in the restaurant was great, various and tasty.

I ll always return

Once you ve been here, you always fancy to return.
I remember on my last visit here(i think i ve visited the island at least 8 Times) , Last November, we were only 3 tourists that visited Mahmya . Ok, for me was perfect, as I am very selfish, i like the Island just for myself, but i can only imagine that for Tourism was not very good. The Tourism in egypt lost about 50 billions dollars Last year due to the "actual situation."
The sand storms in Valais and the snow in Alexandria 3 weeks ago, made me miss Mahmya and i felt i need to see Egypt soon.
That s why i ve booked 10 days in Hurghada, in my favorite hotel, Jaz Aquamarine.
Thing is, as much as I like the hotel and its amneties and kind personal(it s my 4 th visit in this hotel), during day time i need to be on Islands. That s why i ve booked Mahmya Beach(directly from their site, where the price is correct and fix(33 euro without Lunch, and 50 euro Lunch included:i advice you to take the second option), and 3 Times Orange bay. I Love Mahmya more, as it s more quiet, i really enjoy their music in The morning, i Love that the water is warmer during this period(egypt just got out from their winter, still the water is soup warm, i admit i really respect their personal, as they call me "Princess" (thank you, smile, smile), and I enjoy their food. Also, i find it the most Instagramable place in Hurghada so far.
The way back was impressive both times:first, i got to see a rainbow on The sky, and second:dolphins showed up, seeing them made me so sad to part, i ve remembered the words "a water so blue, wish i could live there". But i cannot live în The water, nobody could so far.
So, i ve enjoyed my hours on The island as much as I could. I felt like in an endless summer during winter(as you might know, i live at 1600 m in The Swiss Mountains), which is heaven, but sometimes i really miss the sea, the sands, and the beautiful hectic în Dahar. Smile smile
My trip to Hurghada was not so complicated, as you know Egypt is one of the few countries that asks ONLY for a PCR test 72 hours before your departure, and not a Covid Passport, which i find salutary and i hope it stays this way. The way back home in Switzerland was even easier, as my Covid test was made in hurghada, the costs are 30 dollars, and I found out that Easy Jet has a direct flight Hurghada - Geneva, which i booked without any hesitation, as connecting flights with Pegasus were soooo long, and I don t like losing one day of my vacation(i suffer of jet lag)
A song to match with my mood on The island, well i will just add Armen Miran - Sting - Nina Simone - Hraach - Alex O'Rion, as I listen to it every Day while running, and during my ski hours, when i just imagine the flux reflux sound of the waves touching the Shore, as this îs exactly how i feel about Egypt, like a wave pulled back to the sea.

Great coral

Excellent location for snorkeling, lots of coral reefs and great variety of sea life. One of the lesser populated locations to dive and snorkel
