We visited this island on a snorkling trip. Lots of people doing the same. However plenty of space and a gorgeous place to relax, swim and snorkel. There is a bar and toilet facilities.

Many youers ago you can see the great blue "napoleon fish" in many places in Hurgad just snorkeling, but today one of the rare places you can see this fisdh is "smaler giftun" island. You should visit this place diving.
