Took a boat trip there...did some snorkeling and there is plentiful of fish to look at...water is amazing but 1 cafe on the island is very expensive..also can get a little crowdy as many people on boat trips go there at the same time

I have been to Gifton island a few times now on dive boats where they stop off to let the snorkellers get off the boat. It is a very nice place to stop and have lunch on the boat, the sea is crystal clear and warm.

Such a beautiful island, we went on a snorkelling day trip and had an hour on the island, the only thing that let it down was the fag ends and bits of rubbish on the beach, why can't people be more respectful of such an amazing place!

Lovely island, wished we'd had more time on it. I think they ruin the beauty & exclusivity by having too many tours & people visit it at one time. Also they don't sell beer at the bar :-O Especially loved getting to hold the resident hermit crabs though. Very cute.
