Crystal clear water so deep you cannot see the bottom. Went there twice during my vacation - once by quad-bike and once by camel. Were lucky to see and swim with a sea-turtle

We had no idea how amazing the Blue Hole was! As soon as you jump in the coral reef surronds you and it goes down so far! The swimming area is huge and circular and so deep. We loved everything about this place. This is one place you must visit while in Dahab, you will not be disappointed!

You have to do this dive if you are in Dahab, but the outside wall is where it's at the hold itself is devoid of underwater life.

Great for watching free divers after making your way along the reef wall from "Three Bells" but don't go here only for snorkelling. The best snorkelling is the wall that leads to the Blue Hole which fewer people seemed to be doing. Enter at "Three Bells" and make your way along to the Blue Hole.

Excellent this time around as there are less people about! Very scenic. People come from Sharm to see it but why not stay in Dahab which is much closer and much nicer being a coastal village.
