Mahmya Island Snorkeling day trip from Makadi
Snorkel the coral reefs and gardens of the Red Sea island of Mahmya in the protected waters of the Giftun Island National Park, and marvel at dolphins, schools of colorful fish, and more. Swim in the crystal clear waters, and laze on white sand beaches.
Egy Tips Travel representative will pick you up from your resort in Makadi to take you for an awesome day trip to Mahmya boarding one of two Mahmya boats.
Discover the unique island of Mahmya in the Red Sea, part of the protected Giftun Island National Park just off the coast from Makadi. The full-day tour includes round-trip transfers by air-conditioned vehicle direct from your hotel and a 1-hour sailing tour.
Following your transfer, start by sailing the turquoise waters on board a comfortable boat. Marvel at views of the white sand beaches and palm-thatched beach huts. Soak up the Red Sea sun, watching for playful dolphins as you go. Then, upon arrival at Mahmya, you are free to snorkel the impressive coral heads of the clear lagoon. Relax on the beach and swim in crystal clear waters.
Mahmya Beach is on the southern shores of the Giftun Island National Park off the coast of Makadi. Mahmya in Arabic means “Protected Area”. To protect the coral reef and its marine inhabitants, the boats moor at buoys off the pristine bay, and you will be taken to the shore by smaller boats.
Enjoy lunch at the restaurant, with seafood and Italian specialties will be served at the island restaurant, and drinks are available from the bar throughout the day.
Maintained under strict conservation guidelines, Mahmya is the perfect getaway from the urban sprawl of Makadi, offering peace and privacy for all ages. Glass bottomed boats are available to rent, allowing you the chance to look at the underwater world without getting (too) wet!
Sail back to the marina for a transfer to your hotel at the end of the day.
