Dahab is one of the most attractive beach resorts in South Sinai, located half way between Sharm el Sheikh in the south and Nuweiba in the north. Dahab shores are covered with fine golden sand that might have given Dahab its Arabic name: "Gold".
Dahab was originally a Bedouin fishing village that today is world-renowned for its scuba diving and snorkelling.
Many reefs are immediately adjacent to the waterfront hotels, and amazing dive sites such as the Blue Hole or Nabq National Park make Dahab one of the top dive destinations in the Red Sea.
Dahab is also very popular for its windsurfing, because of the reliable winds that provide outstanding water conditions.
