Paradise on Earth: Why You Should Visit Dahab

Paradise on Earth: Why You Should Visit Dahab

Laguna

If you’re searching for relaxation, comfort and pleasure, then look no further than the Red Sea town of Dahab.

Dahab is one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its moderate climate and gushing waves that crawl gently to the shore. People in Dahab are also often described as cheerful and hospitable.

In Dahab, you will find all that you need, ranging from delightful food options to plenty of lifestyle activities. This is complemented by Dahab’s relaxing and comfortable nature which takes you away from the hustle and bustle of major cities such as Cairo.

Below, I look at some of the things I recommend you do in Dahab during your visit.

Must Do Activities in Dahab

Water Sports

Dahab is an ideal place for an aquaphile. From snorkeling and scuba diving, to windsurfing, kitesurfing and much more, water sports and activities are abundantly available across the town.

From Yoga to Tea with Bedouins

For those who aren’t so fond of the water, there are many other options available. You can participate in yoga classes, cycling, and even hiking nearby mountains where you can drink special blends of hot tea from traditional Bedouins.

This isn’t all you can do though! There are many other exciting activities you can participate in, like riding camels and beach buggies amidst the beauty of the Sinai desert.

Places You Must Visit

Blue Hole

The Blue Hole is a beautiful place for people fond of scuba diving, free diving, and snorkeling. Here, you will find colorful and exotic types of fish. You might even spot ‘Nemo’ the clownfish swimming around!

Personally, one of the most amazing types of fish I ever witnessed while at the Blue Hole was the Lionfish. But be careful if you see one, as a sting from the lionfish can be extremely painful, if not fatal.

It’s also difficult to ignore the breathtaking coral reefs in Dahab which transport you to a completely different world.

Laguna

While not quite as amazing as the Blue Hole, Laguna is still beautiful. Here, coral reefs are not near the shore, requiring you to swim a little in order to see them. The place is also suitable for people who don’t like water activities. You can go there to relax and enjoy the excellent taste of Bedouin tea.
Light House

Light House

At Light House, you will be able to practice scuba diving and snorkeling. This place is perfect for anyone wanting to see some coral reefs as the reefs are close to the shore. The place is excellent and suitable for people who can’t swim because the coral is near to the shore, so you don’t have to swim to see the coral and the amazing fish. Also, for people who want to try diving for the first time, the Light House is suitable for them.  Simply put, the place is easy to access and suitable for all types of water activities and for people with different skill levels.

The Canyon

Personally my favorite place, the Canyon offers a diverse range of fish and coral. This place is suitable for scuba diving and snorkeling.

I prefer this place because I saw different kinds of fish and corals there that I hadn’t see in any other place. Not only are the fish and corals distinct in this location, but also the diving is different as a result of it. The Canyon is a unique place to dive in and offers a different underwater experience.

Abu Galum

Abu Galum is a calm location you can visit by boat or camel. Located just 20 minutes from the Blue Hole, Abu Galum is great for snorkeling and scuba diving. Even better, you can enjoy tasty Bedouin delicacies here!

Blue Lagoon
