Giftun Island is paradise not to be missed. If you don’t want to swim you don’t have to, but if you want to get in the water there are life jackets available and you don’t need to swim to shore, as there is a pier. Before you get to Giftun Island, the boat make 2 stops at coral reefs. You should try to snorkel with a life jacket as many people do. The trip itself costs $15 per person, but at the hotel they were charging £20 pp so make sure you go to a travel agent. Cairo and Luxor are musts as well; the journey is a little tiring but well worth it.
