Best Things to do in Dahab
Diving and Snorkeling
If you conduct a quick search, you will find that the Egyptian Red Sea is mentioned on every list of the best diving destinations. Egypt's reefs and aquatic life are just stunning! Dahab, in particular, is one of the top diving and snorkeling destinations in Egypt. Taking the required courses in Dahab is also a good idea if you want to become PADI certified.
Dahab, which is known for its strong winds, is one of the greatest sites in Egypt to go kitesurfing (or learn). The best area is without a doubt Blue Lagoon in the Ras Abu Galum natural sanctuary, where the lagoon's shallow waters are ideal for practicing feats.
Camping in Dahab is unlike anything you've ever experienced before. Not only will you be living in huts, but you will also be camping on the BEACH! What more could you wish for than a mountainous backdrop and a front-row sea view? Many campsites may be found in Blue Lagoon and Ras Abu Galum (the most popular camping spots).
Are you ready for some monkey business? Go rock climbing at Wadi Gnai to test your limits. There are various routes suitable for both beginners and advanced climbers, and it is unquestionably more enjoyable than climbing on indoor walls.
When it comes to hiking, nothing compares to Sinai's mountains. You can also go hiking at Wadi Gnai, which is a short climb in Dahab. In addition, instead of using the boat, you can climb from Blue Hole to Blue Lagoon. Not to mention that trekking in Dahab isn't the only option; you can also take a day excursion to Saint Catherine or Nuweiba.
When the sun sets in Dahab, it's dinner time for the Bedouins. Twilight Mountain is the ideal location for a Bedouin dinner; the Arabic seats on the ground and the small tables where your dinner will be served, along with a fire show, are ideal, and you will always receive a complimentary welcome Bedouin tea with habaq mint and marmarya, which is delicious and unique.
