Dahab listed top one of MENA's best beaches
Want to go diving? Perhaps Snorkeling? Famous shipwreck? Come to Dahab
Published in Daily News Egypt on 27 - 06 - 2019

Dahab has been featured as the most beautiful beach alongside eight others in the Middle East and North Africa region, according to National Geographic's "Best Beaches in the Middle East" list.

As Dahab is one of the most treasured diving spots, it also has some of the most beautiful and diverse wildlife in all of Egypt. For instance, the corals in Dahab, according to National Geographic, are among the "healthiest in the region".

National Geographic's list also referred to one of Dahab's illustrious sites: the Blue Hole. This diving site is a submarine sinkhole more than 91-metre-deep that is widely known among professional drivers, the list explained.

The Blue Hole is believed to be the deadliest diving site in the world with an arch that is 26-metre tunnel leading divers from the blue hole to the open water.

There are claims that the hole took the lives of 130 to 200 divers in recent years proving to be a deadly challenge.

Above the water and on Dahab's coastline, visitors can witness the beautiful Ras Abu Gallum Protectorate which houses about a 165 plant species–some of which are rare kinds–and several desert animals.
