Hotels Near Dahab

Dahab is one of the best diving resorts on the Red Sea and is also popular with backpackers and package tour operators. April is one of the the resort's busiest months. The main resorts with the sun-and-fun experience at Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada, the northern Sinai coast is Dahab, Nawab and Taba.


Dahab is about 100km north of Sharm el-Sheikh, on the South-East coast of a sleepy town on the Sinai peninsula, there's more to diving than breathing. Dahab is the perfect complement to the highs of diving. It clings for dear life to the Red Sea coast. The Sinai mountains loom in the background, with a great expanse of desolate, grey desert in front of it, looking ready to push this seaside oasis into the sea, like a menacing two-pence nudger. Perhaps more than any other location in the Middle East, Dahab has been a meeting point between the West and the Arab world. There is no other place where Israelis and Arabs forget their animosities and party together so heartily. Dahab is also a magnet for skin divers and backpacking bohemians, who are variously drawn to its famous coral reefs, gorgeous desert moonscapes and hashish-induced laid-back vibe.

To the front lies the turquoise waters of the Red Sea and its coral, freckled depths. To the fifteen kilometres north of the main tourist area of Dahab, in between the Bedouin village of Assalah and the spectacular coral reef known as Blue Hole. Dahab boasts the Blue Hole, a vertical rift of current-free, warm, clear water in the coral which is one of the world's best free-diving destinations. This spectacular Blue Hole, rated among the top 10 diving sites in the world and one of the "most dangerous" too. It goes 200 metres in diameter and plunges deep. Indeed, it is a dive site that needs to be treated seriously for many have lost their lives there. Nevertheless, it remains chillingly exciting as a diving and snorkelling site. Other sites include the Canyon, Eel Garden, Lighthouse and Southern Oasis. One needn't worry about booking trips, be they seafaris or safaris. Dozens of offices arranging interesting itineraries are located in the downtown area and in every five-star hotel.

An hour's moderately smooth ride north from Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab is on the eastern side of the Sinai Peninsula, on the Gulf of Aqaba. Here lie the Sinai Mountains and desert: a relentless terrain of granite rocks and red-gold sand, in which only the traditional Bedouin successfully survive in. The town is located at a dramatic meeting of land and sea, the red and gold Sinai Mountains descending dramatically into the Red Sea, leaving barely any space for land or beast.

Dahab has a long history of luring travellers – and trapping them for days or weeks on end – with its cheap ocean-side camps, golden beaches and rugged mountain backdrop. In recent years Dahab has expanded beyond its humble origins, and now boasts a smooth fusion of hippie mellowness and resort chic. The banana pancakes, moonlight spliffs and hardcore backpackers still remain, though they now coexist with upscale restaurants, boutique hotels and holidaying European families. However, while the vast majority of Sinai is being packaged and sold for mainstream consumption, Dahab is a place where individual travellers are still the rule rather than the exception.

While the rather exclusive hotels in Dahab City offer the advantage of the lagoon with a comfortable sandy beach and good windsurf possibilities, so are the “old Dahab” - hotels of Mashraba and along the Seafront having another advantage, being along the beach promenade, in the middle of the busy life of the pictorial bedoiun town with restaurants, bars and diving schools. Packages Hotel and Diving/Safari generally offer in a one week package with fun Diving and Courses. Enjoy the beautiful reefs of Dahab and luxury accommodation in some of the best hotels in Dahab.

Neither rocky nor slippery are to-die- for qualities when one is in Dahab (translated as gold, it is widely presumed the Bedouins gave it such a name because they associated its shimmering sands with gold dust), due to the fact that the downtown area, although overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba, is not an open-sea like the one at the Hilton or its neighbouring hotel, Le Meridien. There, the colour of the water isn't azure and doesn't look mesmerising as "up there" and the seabed isn't very smooth.

For those looking for some action, due to its strong wind, Dahab is equally famous for its water sports especially windsurfing. The city beats the fame of Ras Sedr and El-Gouna in this particular sport. Windsurfing is a common feature in Dahab, where along with diving and snorkelling resemble a major attraction for visitors and regulars. In Poole Harbour, for instance, the water is warm and shallow and the bay has a sandy bottom. It's not so different to Dahab. If you can join a club back home you will get better, and think how much more fun you will have windsurfing on your next holiday. Aside from strolling down the promenade or visiting Tuta, the loner discotheque shaped as a boat, there's nothing much to do in Dahab at night. The city appeals more to early birds rather than night owls. More details about: The Coral Peninsula of Dahab, Sinai
