i visited this island while i was in my honeymoon in october 2010, it is such a relaxing place to rest for 2-3 hours, where you can enjoy snorkling in red sea & see the beauty of egypt, sand is great, sunny atmosphere, everytime i go hurghada i must visit this island.

We were on a snorkeling trip which included Giftun Island, unfortunately instead of being dripped off in the nice area with the shady sun loungers we were dropped off on the public beach with no shade. still we made the most of it and swam in the sea until it was time to get back on the boat.

Yesterday a whale shark has been noticed near Small Giftun (Hurghada). Amazing picture! It swam around our boat for 10 mins.

Although it is crowded the experience is incredible. The vast number of fish and the cleanness of the water is amazing and worth visiting.

Very nice trip but there take us to the island for about 15 mins then we had to go back , you have to take money with you which we never got told because you have to pay for extras that were on the list
