one can name it as 'Mini Barrier Reef' Apr 08, 2013
This place is dream for every European who is interested in snorkeling, diving , kite surfing or wind surfing .

I was really in awe of this place ,very nice hotels . but be care full while dealing with Egyptians as u almost have to bargain with them even for scuba diving and kite serving . there hospitality is top. There are lot sight seeing available like tour Luxor and Cairo also dolphin tour and jeep safari is fantastic option i did more of relaxing during my stay but next time i wanna explore all of these option as they cost nothing and are very lucrative.

Hurghada - Mahmaya Island Nov 02, 2009
November 2005 took me to Hurghada in Egypt staying at the Sunrise El Palcio Hotel. It was a very large hotel excellent standard of decor,service and excellent food too! The hotel had made a lagoon which was nice to swim from one end to the other. Whilst staying here took a trip to Mahmya island. It took about 45 minutes to go over on the boat once in our site looked like paradise, clear blue sea, powder white sand and excellent snorkling areas.

Hurghada itself is a small place, with new complexes and little in the way of history. It is, however, on the Red Sea coastline and has plenty of scuba centres and diving boat trips. You can go on a regular boat out to visit the surrounding coastline for about £10 and you get a chance to go snorkelling in various areas, looking at the coral reefs and sea life. Proper scuba trips cost more, but include equipment hire and training. There is also a 'submarine' - a boat with a submurged bottom half with glass walls where you can see all the sights without getting wet. There are also areas where other watersports are available (jetskis/banana boats/wakeboarding etc) along the beaches. The town is also on the edge of the desert, so quad bike/camel trips are available and reasonably priced. Hurghada's position in Egypt is reasonably convenient for the main sights - a visit to Luxor takes about 6 hours on a coach and Cairo can take 8. It sounds like a long journey, but if you travel overnight you can sleep. No trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the tombs/pyramids, so to be able to stay in a clean tourist resort like Hurghada and still be able to go to the main sites is a blessing. However, it is very important that you choose your tour organiser carefully and check every aspect - you may think you're saving money by booking with a local office, but cost-cutting can result in problems (we were put on a local bus to Cairo - Egyptian laws are strict about tourists travelling around the country because of coach hijacking and have to pass through checkpoints so we were pretty much hidden away on the bus, separated from each other and sitting next to strangers for the full journey).
