Could be 2 options see chart here . So is this to the north or south?

After looking on both locations I started to be little uncertain, but after a while (especially because of the city of Hurghada) Im sure its down near (to the west) the Abu Minqar island - then it isnt Giftun light, but Abu Minqar light (if there is such name)

I see its already marked, what is the name listed in official charts?
