Mahmya Island Reviews
Als erstes muss ich sagen das der Strand und das Wasser dort sehr schön ist. Die Riffe allerdings leider alle tot. Aber es schwimmen trotzdem schöne Fische umher. Aber jetzt von Anfang an. Wir wollten... more »First of all, I have to say that the beach and the water there is very nice. The reefs, unfortunately all dead. But there are still beautiful fish swimming around. But now from the beginning. We wanted to make a snorkeling trip by boat. We told our tour guide before booking that it should be a trip where there are not too many tourists. He then recommended Mahmya to take us there, according to the tour guide, a maximum of 4 ships per day. All clear that sounds good. On this we booked this excursion. Pick-up at the hotel on the day of the excursion worked fine. After 2 more stops we reached the finish line. Extra offshoot for the island. Out of the bus, a tour guide greeted us and welcomed other guests. Then we went through the security checks. Until then, everything is ok. Then the pier down to the, in thought 4 ships. There were already 8. So much for 4 ships. But still hoping that maybe not all of them go there. Arrived on our ship and set off, we got a group name. We should remember this so that we know when and how and where to proceed. Then we came to the island. First we drove past paradise stand. About 30 boats and rappel full of stand. Shortly driven around the bay, mahmya came to light. This is located on the same island as paradise beach. There were already 12 boats. And of course all 8 of them are also there at the jetty before departure. Rappe full. And then came the military drill. Group..... This way. Group...... faster please. Group...... must be here. 11:30 we were there, and at 8:40 we were picked up from the hotel. Group.... eat 12 o'clock in the restaurant. Group... must sit here. At 13:30 we went snorkeling by boat. Again, the same tone and command also in the water with 30 flowed in the face. Absolute fall. Never again. But who wants to do something like that has a lot of fun.
Mit dem Ausflugsschiff dort angelegt, Schnorcheln ist möglich und man kann viel entdecken. schöner Strand. more »With the excursion ship laid out there, snorkeling is possible and you can discover a lot. beautiful beach.
