Excellent snorkelling here, around the outside of the reef, rather than in the Blue Hole itself. The coral round the inside lip of the Blue Hole seems to largely be dead, with little to no sealife on it. However over the lip and into the sea there is excellent coral stretching both directions along the beach. Toilets are clean, but... More

The Blue Hole is a must visit dive site. We began at DeBells and finished at the Blue Hole. The mix of coral reefs, deep blue and marine life is incredible. Snorkelers would also have an amazing time. As another reviewer commented, things are looking a bit run down with the lack of tourism. But there were clean bathrooms, and... More

When in Dahab, a visit to the Blue Hole is paramount. Listed as the most dangerous dive site in the world, it is still the most stunning site to visit. It ideal for swimming and snorkelling, or just admiring. It is literally a hole in the ground a little paddle off the beach, and goes down to great depth of... More

With few tourists this place is starting to look a bit down at heel. Just so you know there's a charge to use the toilet facilities, but they are reasonably well kept (compared to other dive site facilities around Dahab) Friendly service but the food was not great this time. The diving is nice... watch out for the fins of... More
