EGYPT: A FANTASTIC TRIP TO THE RED SEA

EGYPT: A FANTASTIC TRIP TO THE RED SEA

When I was living and studying in London, I was constantly complaining about the weather and about how much I was missing the sea and the warm sun, so one day my friend and I decided to book a last minute getaway to Egypt for my birthday week. Instead of choosing the popular Sharm El Sheik, we decided to discover another part: Hurghada and the natural reserve of Giftun Island.

The reason why we chose this destination was that, after some research, we realized how insanely beautiful Giftun Island would be and so we had to go! From Hurghada is very close to reach the natural reserve, but there are private tours only few days a week. It’s always better to check the schedule before.

The best part of Giftun Island is definitely Mahmya Beach, where there are no resort as it is a protected area. On the way there, you can spot dolphins everywhere!

This day trip is perfect for snorkeling because of the famous coral reef, very colorful and full of fish! The sand is so white and clear, the water is pristine and warm.

When we reached Mahmya Beach we got totally astonished by the beauty of this place: clear-water beach, white sand, not many people and a perfect sunny day!

    L’Egypte pour moi un des plus beaux pays à visiter. Ses richesses antiques, ses récifs, ses coraux, ses poissons, ses plages paradisiaques “Mahmaya”, je suis tombée amoureuse de ce pays. J’y suis allée 5 fois et je prépare ma 6ème fois pour y découvrir d’autres richesses,d’autres paysages, d’autres paradis marins ou terrestres. Sans oublier le thé Egyptien, le Kochari, le Mahshi spécialités égyptiennes à déguster.
    Je n’ai jamais vu, des gens aussi accueillants, souriants et gentils.
    Si je devais m’exiler un jour …… direction l’Egypte
