GOLD. This is the meaning of the word DAHAB. GOLD, for the color
of its beaches and of the surrounding desert; 2250 years of history
bound to the AQABA GULF and the rocky desert of SINAI. DAHAB,
an ancient village that is coming back to the beauty and wealth of
the time of the NABATAENS. Now as then DAHAB prosperity comes
from the sea.
Once a little village of Bedouins living on fishing and small goat
herds, this small town located on the west coast of the south Sinai
peninsula, 80 km north of Sharm el Sheik, has now become a
welcoming tourist resort. However, you will never find crowds.
DAHAB is far from the mass tourism areas and for this reason it is
still a relaxed, laid back paradise.
On the long promenade there are tens of small restaurants with huge colorful carpets, mats and low tables by the beach, shaded by palms, in which to drink mint tea while reading a book or to eat fresh fish while talking with friends.
DIVING OCEAN is located right in the center of DAHAB, placed like a gem in the middle of the jewel formed by the protected areas of Nabq in the south and Ras abu Gallum in the north.
The abyssal drop offs of the BLUE HOLE area and the endless coral gardens of the south make of DAHAB a paradise for all kind of divers.
A unique scuba diving paradise a few minute drive by jeep from the hotel and dive center, a little more than half hour from the well connected Sharm el Sheik international airport.
An old Bedouin say goes: He who drinks DAHAB waters will return, sooner or later. And it is probably true as some 70% of our guests come back at least one more time.
