Best dive sites in Dahab

The Canyon - Just outside Dahab, this dive site is an open underwater cave at 14 - 22 meters below the surface. It's wide enough for divers to swim through, offering some unique topography. There's easy shore access through a sandy lagoon, and once in you can expect anemones, butterfly fish, unicorn fish, puffer fish, octopus and blue spotted rays.

The Blue Hole - The most visited of all Dahab diving spots, this deep dive site is best accessed via Bell's due to the fact currents always run from north to south. Expect dramatic drop offs covered in corals and home to many little bright orange fish. 

Eel Garden - Right in the city center, just a few minutes from the promenade, this site plays host to huge colony of garden eels. Look to the sandy bottom, where these interesting creatures are swaying in unison with the waves. For the best light, visit early morning or late afternoon. 

Lighthouse Reef - Also in the center of Dahab. A super popular spot for divers and snorkelers alike, this shallow wall of fringing reef offers a wide variety of corals and fish. Often turtles can be spotted here, as well as blue spotted sting rays. 

Napoleon Reef - An excellent dive site for marine wildlife enthusiasts! With top-notch visibility and the chance to see huge grey stingrays, turtles, eagle rays, eels in addition to the rest of the Red Sea's usual inhabitants, make time for at least one dive here.

Snorkeling in Dahab

For qualified divers travelling with snorkelers, Dahab is a great choice. As most diving is done from shore, it is often possible to dive and snorkel the same sites simultaneously. So, no need to separate the group as with some other diver-centric destinations! Top sites to visit include The Canyon, The Blue Hole, Eel Garden and Lighthouse Reef.

Resort Description

Nesima Resort is a beautiful boutique hotel in Dahab, with an onsite PADI dive center for ultimate convenience.

Nesima Resort has been welcoming divers and non-divers since the early 1980s. From the very beginning, this small hotel and dive center combined comfort and style with excellent service and affordable prices.

Ideally situated, Nesima Resort is on the beach front promenade of Dahab just a short walk from the centre of the town with its many shops, bars and restaurants.

Although Dahab has grown over the years it still manages to maintain its laid-back quirky charm from its Bedouin and backpacker roots. Here you can escape from the world for a few days or a few weeks and, with something on offer for everyone, you will rarely find a visitor who comes to Dahab only once.

How to get there


  • Sharm el Sheik Airport is an hour's drive from the resort. 
  • The resort will arrange to pick you up from the airport and bring you to the resort for an additional fee (advance notice required).
  • Check-in time is 2 pm.


  • Check-out time is 12 noon.
  • Following check-out, the resort will arrange a driver to take you back to the airport (advance notice required, additional cost).
