Dahab (دهب) is a small town situated on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, located approximately 80 km (50 mi) northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab is considered to be one of the Sinai’s most treasured diving destinations

Dahab can be divided into three major parts. Masbat, which includes the bedouin village Asalah, is in the north. South of Masbat is Mashraba, which is more touristic and has considerably more hotels. In the southwest is Medina which includes the Laguna area, famous for its excellent shallow-water windsurfing.

One thought on “Dahab

  1. We noticed a lot of buseenssis using the downturn during the unrest to spruce up their establishments. It makes sense to apply the same logic to the town as a whole. Well done for taking part.And, congratulations on the quote and link in the Guardian. We’ve tried with our blog to play our part in encouraging tourists back to Dahab and Egypt but it is good to see the big guns weighing in.
