It is not the best area to snorcell but it is the most famous to whom wants to make records in diving and this is not my thing.

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.

Came here twice on both my days in Dahab. It is really a beautiful place to enjoy marine life and immerse yourself in nature. Be warned it does start to get busy around 11am when all the tour groups roll up. Also PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH OR STAND ON THE CORAL AS THIS KILLS IT! Let's use some... More

I dove the Blue Hole three times, and would really recommend getting into it from El Bells, a five-minute walk away. It's a narrow chute you descend vertically, and you swim out through a gap in the rock almost directly into the fabulous Blue Hole. Swimming along beside the wall -- lovely fish and coral -- it's solid blue on... More

Arrived by quad bike and was taken to a cafe where our belongings were looked after. We were escorted to the 'easy' access point, a small gap between rocks which wouldn't be good if you are claustrophobic!

The blue hole was a beautiful sight to look at, I wasn't able to go inside as I was in a hurry but I'll be going back next week to spend more time.

I was not very impressed with wildlife in snorkel depth inside the blue hole but enjoyed freediving to my limit in the depths and loved the blue depths below me.My hubby was a... More

Great place to dive and with a variety of restaurants a very nice place to chill too. Diving the bells is still one of my favourite dives, even though I've done it more times than I remember.

Excellent for freediving training. Not as many fish as I would like to see but the coral on the saddle was lovely
