This trip focuses on some of the hidden treasures of the Red Sea - the gorgeous Hamata islands south of Marsa Alam. Completely untouched by tourists, these tiny, deserted islands are havens for wildlife, both on land and sea. Things kick off with a drive to Ras Qulan, where tangled mangroves reach down to the waves and provide a home for loads of exotic flora and desert animals - bring your camera and click away. Then board a boat to chug around three of the islands, stopping for snorkelling sessions before docking at one for a closer look. Keep your camera at the ready - It won’t be long before you spot plodding turtles and armies of colourful birds. And while you’re here, you’ll have a delicious lunch on deck.
