Dahab lies on the south-east coast of the Sinai Peninsula. Once a fishing village it’s now a diving, freediving, windsurfing, kitesurfing and holiday hotspot. All of these activities can be learnt here with some great conditions in which to do so. The Bedouin offer desert trekking and you can even learn to belly dance.
Originally a backpacker destination and with a strong Bedouin influence the area retains a more chilled out vibe than other Egyptian destinations. More akin to yesteryear Thailand flavour Dahab has shunned the large concrete monoliths and retained charming accommodations and an atmosphere to compliment.
For some history and culture visit Mount Sinai and St Catherine’s Monastery. They are around 2 hours away by road.
Sharm El Sheikh Airport lies around 1½ hours away by road from Dahab.
