The quaint coastal village of Dahab is located on the southeastern coast of the Sinai Peninsula, 80 kms from Sharm el-Sheikh. This Egyptian town enjoys solitude in the form of isolated beaches and laid-back Bedouin hospitality, making it an ideal holiday destination for those who like simple-yet-luxurious vacations.
Home to golden sand beaches, Dahab spreads across 1,130 square kilometers on Aqaba bay. The perfect blend of the Red sea and Sinai make Dahab the ideal backdrop for adventure sports like surfing, scuba diving, freediving, rock climbing or desert trekking. Dahab is rightly regarded as the Red Sea's top diving location and its most popular diving locations include the Blue Hole and Ras Abu Galuom, a protected area. However, the Blue Hole is often regarded as the most dangerous diving location in the world and must not be explored by beginners.
Dahab is now known as an alternative resort, owing to the sudden popularity the city has assumed in its tourism. Therefore, it is a great place to visit, especially for beach lovers! It has also become popular with digital nomads worldwide because of its laid-back and chill vibe.
