Livelier and more developed than Nuweiba, Dahab is the second resort city of South Sinai, but it is more human-scale than Sharm el Sheikh. Apart from excellent diving and other types of water sport it offers a few hikes, most notably in Wadi el Beda and Wadi Gnai. You could also reach the Abu Galum Protectorate on foot from the nearby Blue Hole.

The “city center” – despite the misleading name – is actually quite out of the tourist areas.
Main locations: 1. City center; 2. Laguna; 3. Mashraba; 4. Masbat; 5. Light House; 6. Eel Garden; 7. Asala; and 8. Blue Hole.
