The sea blue shades and clear water. It is an awesome experience. But there are many beaches there, some are with no umbrellas, so i recommend paradise beach or mahmya beach. Also try snorkeling or diving

The trip worked out to £31 each for 6 of us. I would say it was such good value for money. The boat trip, the guides, the food was all amazing. I would definitely recommend this Snorkelling trip to everyone.

The Giftun Islands boast a beautiful sandy beach and clear blue waters. Visited by the majority of boat trips, they can be extremely crowded at times. Worth a visit however.

We had a nice time, as it is realy good for pictures, but place itself is mega crowded. Too many boats a day come and spoil the atmo. They should limit it, it would be much nicer

Went to Giftun Island as part of snorkeling/diving experience. Great idyllic beach but found there to be rubbish on the sea floor, but was only there for about 40 minutes. Please be aware that Paradise Island is the same place just an exclusive part of...More

Boat trip out was amazing as we were joined by wild dolfins, The islands are stunning with better food served than at our hotel. Snorkeling off the beach with water only up to your waist was amazing with huge range of tropical fish to watch.

Great trip to see sea life. Clear water, nice beach. On public part no beach umbrella, and no trees so cant find any shadow.

This is more of a boat trip with snorkeling, we spent a total of 45 mins on the island, which didn't meet our expectations. we also had really good snorkeling from our hotel beach so did not find the excursion overly satisfying.

Fantastic trip and a must excursion.. however the trip that we did (egyptra) was rushed and I didn't feel we had the best experience.. Do the Sinbad quest.. a cheaper and much nicer experience
