Blue Hole, Dahab

4.5
Must see · Geologic Formation · Cave
Explore the deep at Blue Hole, rich in marine life but notorious for the dangers it poses. Not without reason, the spot has been termed "Diver's Cemetery" by many in the scuba diving community. Despite this, the hole attracts many keen divers, largely because of its easy accessibility (the sinkhole sits just offshore) and its main feature, a tunnel located 56 m (184 ft) below the surface--it leads to the open sea and presents a major challenge to experienced divers.

  • This is the best place in Dahab if you like Swimming and water diving in the beach... but you have to be careful and not touch the coral reefs (الشعب المرجانية) Enjoy watching them without touching  more »
  • You can't miss it, it is a must, with little cafés around the place. You can stay the time you want. You have to pay 80 Egyptian pounds if you are not a local, but it is worthy.  more »

  • A magical space in waters that will overwhelm you and put you in awe. Go if you are into snorkelling (like me) or diving, there is no point of just visiting it off shore, cause this is what you will be seeing from outside.. I highly advise of going with a guide in water, not to lose your way. You go into water from a far point as shown in the 3rd pic, and you swim your way into the blue hole from what is commonly called the bridge. On your way you will witness the most beautiful and colourful coral formations, and you won't be able to see any floors.. to your eyes it is really deep. Be prepared for a true water adventure that you will never forget. Services such as showers aren't available, you will only find changing rooms and toilets. Enjoy the beauty of this sacred place.
  • Amazing snorkeling. 140 meter deep Azure waters with a desert rocky mountain backdrop. Very scenic. Better if you can spend more time there instead of being part of a rushed tour group.
  • The power of nature. Make sure you also visit the Blue Lagoon. It's a must, probably the best places to be in Egypt.
  • What can you say - you should already know it. Sometimes crowded and you need to wait in line to get to the water. Basic drinks and food to buy on site. Saved us with rental boots for a wetsuit, perhaps also other equipment. Whatever your needs, big or small, use the toilet BEFORE coming here. TRUST ME!
  • Good place for diving, we start diving through crack and then dived out from blue hole other side. Also up to the mountains along the shore there are some caves and big rocks. Restaurants are also nice we were at "camel", food is tasty, friendly staff.
