If you’re looking for an exotic location, complete with world-class diving facilities for your 2021 holiday, head to Dahab. Soaring summer temperatures scorch the summer sands and invite visitors to cool off in the clear, warm waters of the Red Sea. Named after the Arabic word for ‘gold’, Dahab’s treasure is its coastal playground of golden sand. A base for snorkelers, divers, sunbathers, windsurfers and other water sports fans, the beaches here are second to none. Away from the beach, the desert offers adventure fans the chance to zoom across the dunes in 4x4s and quad bikes. For a more leisurely journey across the sand, camels offer a steady-paced view of the arid landscape and some of Dahab’s landmark sights.
As well as offering world-class scuba diving sites, the Red Sea serves up more treasures from the deep in the form of delicious sea food. Many of Dahab’s restaurants take advantage of the fresh catches brought to the shores daily. If you’re seeking some Egyptian culture, Dahab has its share of pyramids and sphinx’s. For the iconic pyramids, a visit to Giza is a must. Luxor and Cairo are also reachable by road trip or a short flight. Whether you explore the Red Sea coast, discover the arid desert’s secrets or simply put your feet up and relax on the beach, Dahab has many superb hotels to use as a base.
