There is a reason why the islands are also called the Egyptian Maldives. White, fine sandy beaches and crystal clear water – a paradise for snorkelers, wether beginner or advanced.
Discover the beauties of the sea in a breathtaking environment of nature – almost untouched by tourism.
The excursion starts in the early morning with our team picking you up from the reception. The pick-up time depends on the distance from the hotel. Please don’t forget to bring a copy of your passport with you before you start.
Once you arrive at the port, the boat starts at around 10:00 a.m. and sail about 45 minutes to Syal Island. There you will find a large number of colorful fish and corals, which are rarely seen anywhere else. Enjoy the snorkeling and explore the underwater world for around one hour.
Those who prefer a walk on the white sandy beach and sunbathing are in the right place.
