Egypt Red Sea resorts Map
Dahab therefore the Sinai mountains, Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea. Photo by jay8085.
Dahab, north of Sharm el Sheikh and proceeding within the Gulf of Aqaba, may be the Red Sea’s many calm and all-natural resort/village with a few beautiful small motels and restaurants and clusters of neo-hippies to prove it, though as the location develops they will certainly doubtless be exiled together with allure may be cemented over. After that stop Aqaba?
Dahab also provides great snorkelling and diving, including immediately offshore, but the beaches are unhappy. Alternative activities readily available around Dahab are camel trips to St Catherine’s monastery, checking out Bedouin camps and quad-biking.
Other newish, still building Red water traveler hotels are located in the Gulf of Aqaba at Nuweiba and Taba, or north of Hurghada at El Gouna and south of Hurghada at Makadi Bay, El Quseir and Marsa Alam.

e-mail from Henry:
We made one adventure from Dahab on Greek Orthodox monastery of Saint Catherine which can be built round the burning-bush from where Moses supposedly heard God talk to him. The bush remains despite the fact that a lot of it has been hacked away by zealous pilgrims.
The monastery continues to be inhabited by some Greek Orthodox monks therefore it is only available for visitors for 2 hours on a daily basis. When we arrived there were currently coach a lot of impatient tourists waiting going in. Fundamentally, the doors launched they barged their method in. We hung straight back waiting for what to calm down and joined when a lot of people were currently leaving. It didn’t give us much time, but about we were remaining to circumambulate its cobbled streets fairly in peace.
Dahab is a very unlike the rest of Egypt. Not as much as three decades ago it was just a collection of huts and cabanas that the Bedouin always rent out to tourists and young Israelis. Today it's far more created with a lot of motels, restaurants, stores and scuba diving organizations. Becoming rather truthful it is really not really my scene, but my loved ones loved it.
