The Hamata Islands

About The Hamata Islands

The four Hamata Islands are located off the remote and wild southern Red Sea Riviera of Egypt, about 130 km south of Marsa Alam and 45 km north of the small settlement of Berenice, an area which until very recently was seldom visited. 

The islands are fringed with some of the most beautifully colourful coral reefs you can find anywhere in the world, sandy beaches so white that the archipelago is sometimes referred to as “the Egyptian Maldives” and tranquil lagoons where you can snorkel and admire the abundant and diverse sea life. 

During your trip you will be able to see some of the many species of birds who have made the islands their home. You can also frequently find dugongs, dolphins, rays, clown fish and marine turtles enjoying the diverse biological habitats which surround the islands, as well as hundreds of other colourful examples of Red Sea marine life. 

On the way, you can enjoy the beautiful mountains view, the crystal clear water of the Red Sea and part of Wadi El Gemaal national park. Also, you will pass the entrance of Sharm El Luli and the Qulaan or the mangrove paradise.
