“Paradise for the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

we went to Giftun Island as a day trip from our resort. we were not diasappointed. It was beautiful. The morning was spent snorkelling, with Lunch and the afternoon on the Island.

Buffet style lunch was tasty and well presented. A small bar to purchase icecream and aditional drinks was available at resonable prices.

One thing that would improve it? Some sunbeds rather than laying on mats on the ground which seemed exceptionaly hard.

“The most beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The most beautiful beach and sea which you have to see. There is a very fine sand and the sea is a beautiful turquoise.

“nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

giftun island is beautiful crystal clear waters and white sands , all though i have been to the island several times with Aqua Centre , i prefer to stay on the boat , if you do book with thomas cook you pay extra for sun parasol to sit there for an hour, It is worth seeing just for the clear waters and white sands
