It's a great place and unique shore!
Every thing is beautiful there, and different than any shore on the Red Sea!
A little bit expensive, but it's worth it.

Giftun, The Best trip
May 2021 • Friends
2 years ago after 10 full days in all the ancient relics of Egypt the end of our stay ended with a trip to Giftun Island. Although we don't expect much, this was the icing on the cake. Super professional staff who ensured the safety of tourists in all snorkeling areas, very good food and suitable for sea trips and the most important thing for me was to explore areas where I have never seen a boat. There I had the opportunity to see fish bigger than me. I'll be in Egypt again next week and these guys are first on my list

Location is gorgeous, the beach, the sand, the water. Those umbrellas are awesome.
The sad part is that we did not bring money with us because we should have snacks and drinks included, but that was a lie . They tricked us into buying all inclusive all day trip, but it was not.

a day of relaxation and great impressions
Mar 2021
We took the Orange bay tour through the Landious Tour (23$ per person, but it terms of description - it is Giftun Island tour). It seems that regardless of the tour title the tours are the same - several stops in the sea for snorkelling and some free time at the beach. The only difference is where you landed. There are several places (like Orange bay, Paradise, ) on the Giftun island - and you could see them from the ship.
Anyway - the trip is worth taking. On a sunny day it is great to be on board and enjoy the breeze. We captured dolphins on our way. Beautiful coral reefs and colourful fish, pink jelly fish. The water near the reef are always warmer. Be sure to get sanitised masks.
Orange bay is a good place to relax, take pictures. We were not allowed to take the water or food with us and the one provided on the island - overpriced (a bottle of beer is about 7$). The sea is not deep in Orange bay, after snorkelling we were not really interested in swimming (some people from our tour just stayed on the ship). Beautiful sandy landscapes with hills. The beach is sandy but near the water line there are many sharpish pieces of shells. We stayed for 1,5 hour and would prefer to stay more. I bet the view would be even better during the sunset (the majority of ships left earlier). Our guide spoke English.

Great Experience
Apr 2020
The very first few times I went to Giftun Islands, It was an experience to remember and enjoy. But my two recent trips have not been that good because, the Giftun Island is not what it used to be like, 5 years ago. It is not as clean as it used to be and the space for swimming has shrunk, the water is filthy in places and not much space to swim too.
Snorkeling is the best experience.
