Home > Dahab

Dahab is a tranquil place in South Sinai, Egypt, and a perfect location to find relaxation as well as plenty of adventures. It is situated just a one hour drive from Sharm el Sheikh airport.

Dahab-bay-view.jpgDahab is a Bedouin town that over the past years slowly developed from a chilled backpackers hang-out into a chilled tourist destination with a mix of Bedouins, Egyptians and foreigners living in a community and calling Dahab their home. In contrast to other Red Sea Resorts like Sharm el Sheikh or Hurghada, Dahab still retains its laid back charm. This is only one of the many reasons why so many people fall in love with this unique place and keep on coming back.



Diving in Dahab is awesome, but there are also many other activities that are great to combine with diving, to enjoy on a day out of the water, or if you are a non-diver.
Here are just a few options how to spend your time in Dahab. If you are looking for any other activities, just talk to us and we will make sure you will get the most out of your holidays.

Want to continue your practice while you are in Dahab?
The stillness of the desert and the sounds of the sea provide a surrounding that perfectly suits the purpose of yoga. It supports you to leave the stress and noise, we usually suffer from in the western societies, behind and experience the present moment intensely.
Also the combination of Yoga and diving goes together really well, as special Yoga breathing techniques, visualization and meditation can help you to relax better under, as well as out of the water, improve your buoyancy, slow down your breathing rate and reduce your air consumption. 
There are regular yoga drop in classes for all levels in purpose- built yogarooms just around the corner of Dahab Divers Lodge. If you want to give yourself a treat and enjoy a private yoga session, tailored to your individual needs and objectives we can arrange this for you, or you contact the yoga teacher, or check the schedule via
