  • We went on a boat trip to Orange Bay with snorkeling. Whilst the snorkeling was fun and we did see some beautiful fish the coral reef is bleached and dead. I can only imagine what it was once like...

  • Loved the beach. It's clean and it's one of the few places you're free to dress down and enjoy your day out in the sun. I wouldn't recommend an afternoon here though, before noon and after 4pm would be ideal. There's very little to find by way of food and refreshments so it's best you come with yours if you intend to stay long. All in all it's a great beach to visit if you're ever in Egypt. Waves are calm and water sports are also in play there if that's more your speed.
  • Lovely lovely island with great white sandy beach and clear turquoise water. There are public and private beaches all of which are great. The private beaches like Orange Bay and Mahmya are simply marvelous and worth the money. There are also some nice snorkeling spots but not the spots the regular trips go to. The reefs in the shallow waters have been mostly ruined but still OK. The best thing is the boat trip, really love every moment faring over the red sea from Hurghada port to Giftun and back.
