Place is a typical mecca for all the divers and free divers, snorkelling is ok but not as good experience. Place have a vibrant atmosphere with nice coffee shops and something to eat also few shops with Egyptian souvenirs etc. We came for a day to Dahab so we unfortunately did not dive only snorkel this time so as a...

Probably better for divers than snorkellers as a lot of the surface coral is dead. A bit of walk to enter the sea from where you leave your belongings

It's bit the blue hole that's truly amazing as a diver, but more the outside wall starting at the Bells dive slot and making your way around the wall and then ending cutting through the blue hole. It does feel crazy and you can't see anything but blue and darkness when in the middle of the. Blue hole.

This is a top dive with an abundance of wildlife, the entry point at Ells bells is small and when we got there we were overwhelmed by the amount of people who were obstructing the entry point, some were snorkelling and others were just standing around getting in the way which you can do without after you have been walking...

Amei, please dive in it, but dont touch the reef. Go maximum 44 m, more then that can be dangerous. You have to walk in the shellfs to get there, take care of your feet

Desert safari enjoyable, but a long journey due to the security checkpoints and convoys, You need warm clothes and sturdy footwear for exploring the canyon. The Blue Hole snorkelling interesting, but not exceptional . Food and restaurant poor. Usual visit to the perfume factory before you return annoying.

Awesome experience.. Pretty confusing when you swim over the saddle expecting land.. But you suddenly find yourself in a pit of blue. Quite the experience.

On my recent visit to Dahab we went to the blue hole twice for snorkelling. It's about 15 mins drive from the centre of Dahab but it's well worth the trip as it's a different vibe to the reefs in Dahab. The blue hole itself would have been amazing to dive at but unfortunately my friend did not have his... More
