Overall this is a positive experience and if you've come hear to snorkel and relax it's a good choice. The quality of hte reefs are good but if it gets busy you may not see as many fish as you would expect to....

There are plenty of places to hire snorkel gear from and you can leave your bags at any of the eateries whilst you're in the sea. The whole area has a pretty relaxed vibe but its a terminus or start point for quad bike tours that do generate a lot of noise and dust...

I have just returned from my 10 days holiday in Dahab , I can say that these were the greatest days in my whole life.
"Three pools" is an awesome place where you can both enjoy snorkelling and diving and the veiw of the colorful sea hugging the mountains, a place you need to visit many times.
It is clean and not crowded, compared to the famous "Blue hole " in dahab .
Make sure to sit in the last cafe/camp, a nice new cafe with clean bathrooms and good food and drink services, owned by a nice female doctor who has been very helpful for me, my wife and my one year old baby. This cafe has the most beautiful view of the three pools. I went there 3 times during my short stay in Dahab and of course I will always go there every time in Dahab.

This was one of my favorite dive sites in Dahab in the past. This year we found that it had turned into a very busy tourist spot. With quad bikes roaring back and forth raising the dust up plus making it unsafe to cross the road. Plus large groups of unsupervised snorkelers just standing around talking while walking on the coral.. This site will not be worth going to if the Egyptians don't take care of it.
I know the people operating the bikes and snorkel trips want to make money but there customers are destroying the area. In the end it will not be worth going to.

Three Pools used to be a great option if you wanted to avoid the large groups at Blue Hole, but not anymore. As a result of a large number of tourists who can’t swim properly, the coral in the three pools themselves are very damaged and in some spots, almost completely dead.

Having said that, there are still some cool fish if you can get there before the crowds and the coral outside of the pools in the less frequented areas are still pretty fantastic.

We were here as part of a Dahab tour from Sharm. All the tour buses stop at the same place, they usher us in to the water at the same place too. It can cause some problem- as you can imagine... The tour guides are adamant that you go in as a group (I understand- so they don't loose you), but if you can swim it is annoying. We had a 40 mins swim- then they send us out. We waited 45 mins at the restaurant for the other group members to catch up and do the swim (they were quad driving). I could not understand why we were pulled out of the water only to sit around and waiting... 😡
As for the coral reef- it is dying... Was painful to see. Saw some nice fish- but nothing special we wouldn't see right at the hotel in Sharm...

Our group was at Three Pools from 9-4pm., and could have been there even longer! Our group was primarily there to dive, but I was interested in horseback riding.
The guide from Mona Lisa Stable met me at the dive site with horses and we rode out from there. He was flexible about the timeline, and we ended up riding just past Gabr el Bint (3 hours roundtrip with a solid amount of galloping). My guide was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and happy to discuss the horse culture in Egypt (e.g. nutrition, stable management, etc). We galloped in areas where the footing allowed and he even offered to film video. I'd guess that he would be just as willing to provide a shorter and/or more leisurely ride for novice equestrians or those just looking to experience such wonderous scenery from horseback. I highly recommend this stable! The animals are well cared for (healthy weight, feet, grooming), the guide is thoughtful and friendly, and the price is very fair. I wouldn't have ridden with this stable if the animals were not correctly cared for. This stable came recommended by local ex-pats and I'm glad to have followed their advice. I'll always remember riding with MLS as the highlight of my week-long trip to Dahab!
At the dive site our group had our own cabana area right on the water where we could safely leave our items. The hosts offered food and drink that was very satisfactory for our hungry divers. I did not eat, but did enjoy a lemon-mint juice that was refreshing and very sweet.

It is a perfect place for diving and snorkeling, relatively crowded, and it is recommended to select best coffee shop to stay for better experience.
