This should be an absolute gem of an island! The only trouble is that you get dropped on a section of beach about 400 m long with a private beach at either end you are not allowed to access. Obviously there are a lot of...More

Badwaya Desert Adventure? Any excursion comments? (4 Replies)
Hi, Has anyone done this trip? Any comments? We are in Hurghada now and wanted to do a couple of excursions. Thinking of Giftun Islands and possibly the above for my boys aged 11 and 13. Many thanks

Done it a couple of times and have always had a good time but watch the quad bikes as many insurers do not cover you for it all the best Rob

Should I stay in Hurghada or El Gouna? (9 Replies)
Hi all! I will be traveling to Hurgada in March 2015 for 3 days. I could not decide on where to stay. Is Hurghada a better choice or El Gouna? Hotel choices are: Turtle's Inn Hotel in El Gouna and Swiss Wellness Spa Resort in Hurghada. I would like to swim in nice beaches, and an easy access to the Giftun Islands for snorkeling would be an advantage. Thanks!

El Gouna is more up-market. I'm picky so I'd stay there!

Has anyone been to Giftun Island? Just wondering if it is worth a trip. Also how much should i expect to pay? Thanks :)

hi there been to giftun twice on snorkelling trips. it is lovely you normally stop a couple of places to snorkel then giftun for an hour or so it is fine can get quite busy when all the boats come in. i wouldnt go to egypt without going the snorkelling trips there great we pay bout £35 including lunch and it is the full day you can probably get cheaper cause ours are just with whatever travel agent we go with.
