People who have visited Dahab many years ago say a lot have changed, but it is still a very laid back place. There are many cheap hotels in town, but to the south and north bigger and more expensive hotels have been built and are being built. Along the beach there are many nice restaurants where it is easy to spend a whole day, reading a good book, swimming and eating. And around Dahab the diving is excellent. When you travel this is a nice place for to stop at for some days or a week.

    Whoops...I rated these pages some years ago...But as I said b4 ..great tips and pictures and a big change from 1978 when I was there, just an Israeli moshav, a cafe and small hotel with huts and a beduin village. Love the sleeping dog pic.

    Walking by the sea, swimming, diving - certainly sounds like a wonderful area for relaxation.

    Yes, Dahab looks different than what I remember from 36 years ago. At that time there was only sand - and one rickety kiosk.

    I like your “dog resting“ photo! Diving there must be a wonderful experience!

    A very good place for having a rest! But I do not bear out more than several days on a beach ... It's a pity your Siwa and Qarah pages are still without texts. Waiting for them having been completed. Thanks Malena for the virtual travel!

    As you said... Dhahab is really a laid back place to stay for some days. I visited Dhahab twice, but only for half a day..
