Low-key, laid-back and low-rise, Dahab is the Middle East`s prime beach resort for independent travellers. This former Bedouin fishing village is now a popular tourist destination—especially for serious windsurfers, who`ll find some of the best conditions in the world off Dahab`s beaches. Dahab is also home to the Blue Hole, the world`s most dangerous dive site. Descending to a maximum depth of 328 feet and easily accessible from the shore, the Blue Hole, is shielded from the currents, so its waters are relatively calm. Dahab is a destination so alluring that some have opted to make it their home soon after visiting.
