History of Paradise Island

It all started with four words in 1998: “The Best or Nothing”.

With this, the founders wanted to create an island that freed its visitors from worry and provided them with the relaxation they need.

As a result, Engineer Ibrahim Al-Afani named the island Paradise, a title that speaks for itself!

  • Bright Idea

    As part of a tourism project in Hurghada Ibrahim Al-Afani, the founder of the island, presented the idea of Paradise Island to his friend Saad Mohammed. Together, they decided to take it on!

    Paradise Island Hurghada About Us


  • Tough Decision

    With a little engineering and environmental advice from leaders in the industry, the founders settled on Giftun Island as the ideal place to start their project, without harming marine life. Then, they chose the name ‘Paradise’ because of the beauty of the islands.

  • The light of Sun

    They decided to build a marina. Once the marina was created, more ideas came to fruition as Paradise Island got its own tourist boats. This sparked popularity as news of paradise on earth spread far and wide. Additionally, construction on the island increased, which included environmental and beach protection that meets international standards.

    Over the next few years, the island expanded to 7000 meters and included a variety of services like restaurants and medical facilities as well as the Paradise Spectra - a glass-sided boat that allows tourists to take in the landscape and the colorful fish. In fact, the many recreational features Paradise boasted made it stand out from all of the other islands.

    More Paradise Island Hurghada



When you look at what the island has become, you might wonder how it began with just a small wooden building and an umbrella. But, the founders knew the challenges they were taking on and were determined to overcome anything that came their way.

This meant creating a marina and starting a fleet of their own boats.
As a result, for 24 years, Paradise Island continues to thrive. It has been part of so many visitors’ lives. These people are the beating heart of the island and the true hero of our story.

Our growth does not stall here. In fact, this is only the beginning of our achievements. Since the beginning of Paradise Island Hurghada and into the future, we promise to offer you

“The best or nothing”

Paradise Island Hurghada – Marine Fleets

When the founders noticed that tourists were having trouble disembarking from boats and onto the island, they knew they had to do something. So, a gorgeous marina was built to make everyone’s lives easier. This soon transformed into Paradise-owned boats for tourists to access easily because we want to make sure everyone can get to the island safely.

The Paradise Island Marine Transportation service includes:
Paradise Conquest Semi-Submarine Boat– This is 33 meters long and 7 meters wide with a 100-person capacity
Paradise Class – This luxury boat has 3 floors with a sun deck and a glass bottom. It is 42 meters long and 11 meters wide with a 160-person capacity.
Paradise Spectra – This glass boat is 23 meters long and 5 meters wide with a 32-person capacity.

We plan to add even more amazing opportunities to experience the ocean by building more ships for the Paradise Island fleet.
