The aptly named Paradise Island is just a 45-minute boat ride from the beautiful town of Hurghada, and holidaymakers can easily arrange a trip across the sea to this lovely little slice of heaven-on-earth. The soft, white, sandy beach of Paradise Island has had a marine protectorate since 1986, and the amazing coral reef which surrounds the island is filled with countless colourful and exotic fish, making this a very popular beach destination for avid snorkelers and divers.
Paradise Island is particularly popular with families, as the children enjoy the boat trip across the Red Sea, where they can revel in playing on the sand, building sand castles, having fun in the specially designed kid’s area and paddling and swimming in the warm sea.
There are sunbeds and parasols on the beach, as well as a tasty restaurant and bar – where you can enjoy a meal and a drink. Quite often, Egyptian folklore shows and dancing displays are put on for your entertainment before you catch the boat for the return trip to Hurghada.
