  • 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.....  more »

  • Great place to spend a day out. Don't bother with the set menu meal they offer with the package. You over pay and the quality is pretty poor. The rest is great . Boats are clean, beach is pristine. Service is great
  • One of my favourite places. It is out of this world. You can enjoy a swim or snorkeling. The food is good but quite pricey
  • Unfortunately had a very bad experience today ! We were a group of 7 booked yesterday for today and paid full amount online to arrive from Gouna to Mahmeya beach to be informed that boats r cancelled because of weather without receiving any notice ! To be informed when i called that they knew about the weather since yesterday and closed bookings though i was able to book and was on the phone with one of the employees !! Its a nice place for sure but be ware while booking they r very unprofessional.
  • Of you are searching for nice coral reef, it is not there anymore. All corals are dead because of negligence of people. The trip to the Ilene itself is too expensive to see almost no fishes and sadly dead corals.
  • Excellent management and one of the best beaches in Egypt (clear turquoise water and golden sand) . The boat ride itself is also enjoyable. The Island is well serviced with beach beds/towels, clean toilets and multiple seating areas. There’s a great panoramic spot excellent for taking pictures of the beach. All included in your visit (included in price) Perfect if you’re staying in Gouna and want a nice beach for a change Haven’t tried their buffet menu, but the pizza we ordered was good.
