The Giftun Islands are a popular excursion from Hurghada, offering snorkeling, diving, sunbathing and a welcome retreat from the mainland bustle.
Offshore reefs provide spectacular drop-offs for experienced divers, hiding moray eels and fish in amongst the corals. Closer to shore, the coral reef snorkeling is superb.
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.
The Giftun 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).
