  • Excellent location for snorkeling, lots of coral reefs and great variety of sea life. One of the lesser populated locations to dive and snorkel  more »
  • Best place in Hurghada city. Excellent service , very good food , amazing view and location . Highly recommended  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
