Paradise Island or also called the Giftun Island is truly amazing place, similar to those incredible small islands that one may see only in Caribbean’s. The island is surrounded by a number of spectacular reefs teeming with marine life. This is incredible place for diving and snorkeling but also for those who like to enjoy unbelievable sandy beaches.
Usually visitors go to the Paradise Island via tourist agencies. Once you book your day trip a minibus will pick you up in front of your hotel. It will take approx. 30 min till you reach Hurghada’s Marina where a boat will be waiting for you. Boat ride lasts 1h till you reach the Paradise Island.
Then visitors will have time to snorkle, swim, enjoy the sun and sandy beach. They will also have lunch on the boat and in the afternoon, they will go back to Hurghada. The boat will arrive to Hurghada Marina at 4:30pm and additional 30 minutes will take till visitors reach their hotel.
All in all, this is amazing experience and we would definitely advise our visitors to go for it.
(!) However, they should keep in mind that there are agencies and people inside of the hotels that will offer these excursions at high prices. For instance, we went through an agency Egyptra (one of the agencies that we have found online) and the price for this, full day, excursion was 17.5 euros per person.
While at the hotel it will be offered from 35 to 45 euros per person.
