    'Sand Buggys'

    'Sand Buggy' riding

    We went for a ride on some 'sand buggys' one day...but unfortuantely they were only 4 wheeler motorbikes...haha... I grew up with those so it was a bit funny for me to pay for a ride. ;) It is fun though to ride along on the sand and see the scenery along the way. :) We paid 160 LE each or 180 LE for a double.

    Shopping...

    Dahab Streets

    There are plenty of shops around in Dahab...espeically along the edge of the sea... You'll find all sorts of souvineers, clothes, sheesha pipes, jewellery, bags, crafts etc everywhere you go. The prices are all fairly good and some prices seemed even better than in other parts of Egypt.

    Snorkelling at the Blue Hole

    The Blue Hole
    2 more images

    We took a jeep out to the Blue Hole (about 20 minutes drive north of Dahab) for 20 LE each from Dahab...and you can hire your gear out there if you don't have it already.

    There are plenty of cafes and shelter at the Blue Hole although there is no actual beach. It's really nice though to sit out in one of the many resting areas and relax with a cool drink after a snorkel. The snorkelling is really good and there are plenty of colourful fish and pretty coral. :)

    Swimming and sun-bathing

    Along the beach in Dahab

    Most people go swimming in Dahab from one of the restaurants along the beach in Masbat. Many of the restaurants have sun beds where you can spend a lot of time. A mango juice is about 10 pounds and a big water 3 pounds. Be careful with the change, that you will not owe them something until the next time or the opposite way round (it’s a way to get you coming back).

    South of Dahab

    There are many beautiful diving sites around Dahab, and several of them are also good for snorkelling. A good thing is that at the different locations you will find a signboard with the name of the site and a map over the reefs. There are also texts about protection of the reefs, telling you to be careful and not destroying anything (which is very important that you think of).

    Relaxing in Dahab

    Resting dogs

    It is easy to hang around in Dahab for days not doing much more than eating, sleeping and relaxing. You can also go on an excursion to climb Mt Sinai at night to see the sunrise or go on a camel safari to a Bedouin camp. The sun is warm but most of the time there is a wind making it cooler.

    Desert Divers and nad-licking dog

    I believe Desert Divers is one of the oldest, and one of the only Bedouin-run dive centres in Dahab (out of about 45 in the area) - plus they have the prettiest dive centre and fabulous camel safaris into the desert, with or without diving.

    Bedouins at Mount Sinai

    Bedouins love having their photo taken. They're absolute hams and posers in front of a lens. Have fun.

    Bedouins at St. Catherine's Monastery, Mount Sinai

    Bedouin children around St. Catherine's Monastery mill about often selling ceramic eggs. Don't buy. As long as they earn money, their parents will not send them to school.

    Dahab is a relax and laid back town. So we are here to enjoy the ocean and beach without paying an excessive premium in its neighbouring cities with flux of higher end resorts and hotels.
