Scuba diving in Nuweiba is basic and adventurous. Some of its spectacular scuba dive sites are combined in a Bedouin overnight camel camp trip. It has plenty of shore dives, perfect coral formations, canyons and caves.

Nuweiba, a typical port-like town, is located north of Dahab and still trying to match its northern neighbors backpacker's athmosphere. The diving is oke with a lot of opportunities to get certified. Besides water activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving you can enjoy tours into the desert, lay down on the pretty beach or enjoy its Egyptian evening entertainment.

The water temperature is nice at 20 degrees in winter to 25 degrees in summer. The climate in Egypt 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 wind conditions.
