Dahab Holidays

Dahab is one of the top dive sites in the world. Just step off its golden sandy beaches into the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea and explore its magical kingdom of marine life.

Dahab, Egypt


Dahab is situated on the east coast of the Sinai Peninsula. Known for its year round sun, great weather and superb golden beaches Dahab (dahab means gold in Arabaic) is an ideal location for a family holiday. Dahab has a more relaxed feeling than neighbouring Sharm and is a bit cooler which makes it more attractive to young families worried about the heat.

Nature has blessed Dahab in that just off its beaches are amazing coral reefs, which can be easily explored from the shore.

Dahab like Sharm has a good choice of hotels to fit any budget, from a backpacker hostels to luxury 5 star hotels.


The main place where everyone goes shopping is the area of Dahab called Masbat. Here you'll find bazaars, bars, cafes, and restaurants which remain open until the wee small hours. Top things to buy are papyrus, spices, alabaster, tea, coffee and the ubiquitous Red Sea t-shirts.

The Bedouin culture is quite prominent in Dahab and you cannot fail to see their presence in the bazaars. So why no take a little piece of Bedouin culture home? So pop down to the promenade by the sea and buy your children hand made bracelets made by Bedouin girls, they'll love it.


Dahab is a great quiet family location due to the lack of nightclubs and the relaxed atmosphere. The main action in Dahab is focussed down on the its promenade, Assalah. Here you'll find shops, bars, cafes and street side stalls.
