I have dived the blue hole twice, once from the Bells and once from the shore. It was amazing there was so much sea life to see from fish, octopus and eels. the coral was beautiful and we were lucky to see the world championship freediving trials taking place too.

Loved diving from the Bells to the blue hole. Viz was bad during my dives, but still enjoyable. Can imagine it gets really busy with snorkellers during the holidays, and could cause them to be in the way when trying to enter and exit.

Really easy access from Dahab via jeep, camel or taxi. Easy access into the water for snorkelling or diving, though the snorkelling is so good you don't need to dive!

The entrance to the blue hole though bells was great. I really enjoyed this site, the fish were everywhere and the coral looked mostly healthy. It was good from 30 meters up to 10... There were quite a few other divers in the hole at the end when we were all doing safety stops but it was fun not overly... More

Go earlier in the day if possible to avoid the crowds. You will be encouraged to eat at one of the local cafes at the site so bring a little extra cash if you wish to do so.

Right next to the restaurants & bars.. Perfect site. ( especially if you have a non diving partner - which I have ) If you enter via The Bells, it can feel a bit scary. straight down to 30 metres. one by one - so if you are following your dive master or buddy you can't see anything but bubbles,...

It was a very sad experience for me to see all the coral reefs totally ruined. I only did snorkeling, so I cannot judge the diving experience.

Brilliant diving and snorkelling in a former Bedouin fishing village. Wonderful atmosphere and access to deep water almost on beach. Great snorkelling over the lip into the blue hole. If you go on a tour to the area the local restaurants provide good simple food served in very atmospheric terraced areas overlooking the beach. Good reasonably priced equipment hire and... More

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
