Visited on a Thomson trip, it was ok but nothing special, I wouldn't call it the Egyptian Caribbean as some people do, the food was very good and it was a hot day but we could of saved £120 and done the same on the beach at our hotel

Excellent trip, good value for money and crystal clear water. Taken to two coral reefs on route to the island and given snorkels, masks and flippers. The staff look after you in the water and the water is crystal clear with the reef a few feet below. What a great experience!

One of the best islands I have ever been. Calm, beautiful sight, near by reefs to check out with snorkeling. We bought the tour from agency, we had doubts but we loved the place with my wife. Would go again.

Just another island really, nice to sunbathe and snorkel but nothing you can't do on your hotel beach or other islands really. Nice for a change of scenery though.
