Dahab is a small town located on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, approximately 80 km northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh.
Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, Dahab is now considered to be one of Sinai’s most treasured diving destinations and a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
The wind is said to blow 300 days a year in what is known as the Gulf of Aquaba wind tunnel. From March to October you can expect 28 windy days each month with at least 4 hours of wind a day.
Sailing is on a protected lagoon where beginners can wallow in the shallow knee-deep water and intermediate to advanced riders can take advantage of the long speed runs on flat water in the deeper parts of the lagoon.
There are several centres in the Laguna area providing tuition and equipment rentals and some offer surveillance & rescue services.
Accommodation is available from super-budget lodgings through to luxury hotels.
The nightlife is relaxed where you find a good meal and a beer.
Other activities include some of the best scuba diving & snorkelling on the planet, SUP, camel riding, quad biking and chilling out in the Bedouin Village of Masbat.
