Explore diving around the Abu Dabbab Lodge

Resort Description

The Abu Dabbab Lodge is a boutique hotel with authentic single-story wooden bungalows.

The beach is within easy walking distance where you’ll find a nice selection of food & beverage outlets, such as the Turtles Beach Restaurant & Bar, Reef & Grill Bar, Ice Cream Corner and a Bedouin Tent for all flavors of shisha, tea and Turkish coffee.

At Abu Dabbab Lodge you will find an airport shuttle and a 24-hour front desk. Other amenities include entertainment staff and an array of activities that can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings.

What to see

Expect to encounter dolphins on the way to dive sites by boat and maybe even underwater too. There's a resident manatee at one of the sites and lots of huge turtles to be seen. Crocodilefish are easy to find and pipefish squirm around the reef. While oceanic whitetips and hammerheads grace at Elphinstone, closer to shore you can see whitetips and bowmouth sharks too. Tuna and mackerel hunt along the reef and expect the usual clouds of anthias and swirls of fusiliers too.
