Jogging in Dahab

Hi all

I'm visiting Dahab by myself for a few day late January for a dive course. I quite fancy jogging along the coast and have heard mention of a promenade path.

I'm staying in Penguin village just outside of town and wondered if anyone knows whether jogging is easy / safe around that area. I'm not looking for a long route - maybe 4-5km.

Hi Lucy,

From the Penquin there is a great promenade to the right and left. If you head to the right eventually you will get to the sandspit which is a nice route. If you head left, after the main restaurant area keep going and you will head to Assalah beach which is stunning.

We walk the dog in those places and jogging is easy. I feel very safe in Dahab. Lots of friendly people.

Hope that helps,

Best place for jogging for me: the lagoon, possibly at sunset! :-) Right side going out of Penguin towards the beach (2-3 km) :-) .
