Other activities

Dahab is one of the best sailing spots in the world offering consistent high winds year round. But there will always be the odd day when the wind is light, or perhaps when you just fancy trying something else!  There's a huge range of activities on offer.  Even if you don't see it below, just ask us and we can arrange almost anything for you!


The many beautiful reefs and warm water water make Dahab perfect for snorkeling.  Many of the area’s shore-accessed scuba diving sites are also great for snorkeling.  There are snorkeling spots close to Dahab Stars and the Mashraba and Lighthouse areas of Dahab.  Popular dive spots such the Blue Hole and Three Pools are about a 30-minute taxi ride away.

Scuba Diving

Dahab offers world-class scuba diving opportunities for complete beginners and advanced divers alike.  Many of the dive sites are close to the shores around Dahab and this makes it easy to enjoy watersport activities at Dahab Stars in the morning and diving in the afternoon, or vice versa.

We recommend PADI tuition and guided dives from Bubbles Team, our neighbours at the Ganet SInai Hotel, or the Black Rock Dive Centre along the beach.
