PhotoSpeaks: Giftun Island, The Egyptian Paradise You Must Visit For Your Snorkeling

Written by Genevieve Ananti
Giftun Island is a beautiful, mesmerizing sand reef, surrounded by a garden of corals and exotic marine life. As you set off to reach Giftun Island, you can relax on deck soaking up the sunshine with the breeze wafting through your hair and admire the stunning views.
The Islands are in the Red Sea offshore from Hurghada, a 45 minute sail by day cruise from the mainland. The islands are called Giftun Kebir and Giftun Sughayer (Big and Little).

As you sail along, your boat will drop anchor for one of the snorkel/dive/swim and relaxation stops, grab a mask and let your snorkeling guide lead you over rainbow-coloured reefs. Swim through clouds of exotic fish, or just lounge on deck topping up the tan.
Moving on afterwards to Giftun Island, you can soak up the glorious sunshine on the sandy beach or swim in the crystal clear waters.
There is also an opportunity for some reel fishing and some fun on inflatable, such as banana boat and sofa. You will be treated to soft drinks along the way and a tasty on-board lunch before sailing back.

The islands are famous for their pristine protected beaches, and a resort on the larger island provides all the facilities you need for a day by the sea, along with tours and windsurfing.
You should make this fantastic place, one of the places to visit alone, with friends or with your family.
