Google My Maps functionality allows you to create your own maps to share. Unfortunately it has a lot of noisy labels which makes the maps hard to read. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/

Is there a way to turn the labels off before you send the link? Or even afterwards?

Here is my map and it seems the burger option isn't available

Change the base map, "Simple Atlas" view displays nicely without other default labels.


It is a problem but I think that there is also an option here:


It is a Michelin Map service and you are able to select the style of map from 5 options. There is a drop down list to the right of the map image. In my case I wanted zero labels on the base map but didn't quite make that, it did however give me great start and all I had to do was manually remove the very few place names, half a dozen or so.

Hope this helps.
