Scuba diving near Dahab is excellent with plenty of shore dives and nicely formed corals, canyons and caves. A dive combined with a camel safari and spending the night with Bedouins is a great experience. The desert town Dahab is located in the east of the Sinai, north of Sharm el-Sheik. It has become an independent traveler destination, giving rise to many cheap hotels, restaurants and dive schools where you can learn how to dive.

Water temperatures are nice at 20 degrees in winter to 25 degrees in summer. The Egyptian climate is hot and dry, ranging from 18 degrees in winter to 40 in summer, even hotter when going into the desert. Diving can be done year around, with visibilities between 10 and 50 meters, depending on the place you visit and the generally calm wind conditions. Some of the best dive sites of Egypt can be found in Dahab such as the Blue Hole and Ras Abu Galum. Enjoy your dives in this part of Egypt.
