Egypt Travel Destinations: Dahab





Dahab means gold in Arabic. It is said that this name was given by the Bedouins, who likened the shimmering sands to gold dust.

Dahab, located approximately 100km northwest of Sharm El-Sheikh, is still considered to be one of South Sinai's most treasured diving destinations swarmed by tourists.
It is famous for its golden beaches and deceptively deep diving sites, such as the Blue Hole, the Canyon and the Lighthouse.

This pearl of the gulf actually consists of the Bedouin village of Aslah in the south alongside the tourist hot spot of El Masbat. It is an amazingly peaceful destination with swaying palms, fine sand, friendly dolphins and wonderful diving opportunities. There are quite a few hotels.
