Giftun Island can be reached by many tourist boats taking off from Hurgada in less then an hour. The sand is really white and water magic. And we did lot of snorkeling along the coral reefs too. The area is protected and construction forbidden, but there are too many tourists for my taste. Luckily the stay on the Island is limited so they don’t manage to disperse and make more damage, but being here alone must be something special.
