I joined the tour to Giftun islands, you can have the shuttle bus to the boats, then we went to snorkeling and Giftan island. First idea with Red Sea is that incredible blue and hot sun. If you don't want to get sunburnt please use more UV-resistance spray! The first stop is Giftun island, you can play the white sand... More

Best trip in Hurghada for the reasonable money! Beautiful beach with wonderful sand and water. Small Caribic island in Egypt. Just take the snorkelling stuff with you from the boat - otherwise you will be bored after an hour because it's just a amazing beach, nothing more. Sometimes too crowded but nothing one could not withstand.

It was just beautiful and looks like an almost untouched desert island. Classic white soft sand and turquoise clear water, could not stop taking photos. Seems like only certain groups get dropped off to the area with bar and shades, be prepared to be in the sun for an hour. Lots of tours comes and goes, so it can be... More

This is a nice stop for a bit of change. A sand bar island and nothing else. Still worth going as it can be samey in the resort. This was part of out boat trip excursion that includes food when we get to the island. Friendly staff and overall good place for tanning and swimming.

It was a great experience, snorkeling, fishing and to sea very nice sea creatures. The boat was nice we started 8.00 in the morning and finished our cruise by 5.00 pm. They offered open buffet lunch and free drinks during the cruise. Highly recommended.

Beautiful sandy beaches, but the Paradise one is only accessible through one exclusive agent. The rest are open to all, but there's nothing but the sand and the sea. One hour is more than enough to get roasted and bored...
