Dahab
The most popular activity in Dahab is scuba diving and snorkelling. World renowned for its shore diving, Dahab is an excellent choice for divers of all levels as well as offering some of the most adventurous diving in the Red Sea. The legendary 'Blue Hole' is just 4km from Dahab shores, and whilst being one of the most dangerous dive sites in the world, is a treat for those brave enough, skilled enough and with the correct mix of gases to attempt the dive. Snorkelling is also very popular (especially around the sloping reef outside of the blue hole which is rich in marine life and ideal for snorkelling).
Aside from diving and snorkelling, Dahab itself has nothing significant in the way of sights, but you can easily arrange tours to some nearby points of interest. Ein Khudra, a Bedouin oasis. Coloured Canyon Three pools, a bedouin oasis known as Wadi Gnay and lovely area for snorkeling, diving or just relaxing The lagoona, a long sandy stretch close to Dahab City is the place for wind surfing, kite surfing or to admire the view. Take drinks and snacks with you as there are no cafes on the lagoona point. This is a great spot to spend a day away from the town centre. Petra (Jordan) is easily organised from Dahab Jerusalem (Israel) day-trips are also organised from Dahab St Catherines and Mount Sinai Day trips or night trips are very popular and organised by most hotels, but prices vary. The Old Port Dahab has some interesting history. There are ruins of an old Nabatean Port along the coast in Mashraba. It shows there was a community here dating back about 1600 years.
