The island of Mahmya is Egypt's exotic escape that's an eco-tourism haven. You'll sail over to relax on its powder-white sand, snorkel amongst rainbow coral reefs and perhaps even spot a dolphin. If you're hankering for a place to kick back and relax, Mahmya is just what you need.
Start by sailing over the Red Sea's turquoise waters towards the island, located in the protected Giftun Island National Park near Hurghada. Enjoy the warmth of the sun on your back as you sail over, then disembark to pick up your snorkelling gear and recline under the thatched sunshades.
There's also an optional cruise out to a coral reef for 45-minutes of snorkelling. After a buffet lunch that includes a special kids' menu for the little ones, there's more time to unwind, or take a dip in the water before heading back to Hurghada in the late afternoon.
