Dahab is arguably the most relaxed of all the Egyptian Red Sea resorts and a popular choice for those in the know (it's only 1 hour from Sharm). Nesima hotel and dive club have been welcoming divers and non divers since Dahab opened up to tourists and in this time have established themselves as experts combining comfort, relaxation and superb service at affordable prices. Here you can escape from the world so grab your fins and sun lotion and splash into the warm blue water's of Dahab's coral coastline. Or simply sit back and enjoy the view as a glowing orange sun sets over the sea.
The Nesima hotel might be small with only 51 rooms but it has an impressive reputation for the standards attained over the years. The Nesima hotel is somewhere people return to again and again as they strike the right balance between attentive service and welcoming ambiance - all within a short walk of Dahab's centre. All of the rooms are thoughtfully decorated with a traditional feel together with telephone, fridge, air con and private en suite. Some rooms have a private terrace. And with its prime sea front location, you are never far from the water's edge.
Start your morning at the Nesima hotel with breakfast on the terrace and home made croissants. If you are not heading out diving, why not grab a spot around the pool where you can get a refreshing drink or tasty snack. The restaurant serves high quality international food (especially famous for the deserts). From beginning to end of your holiday, the team at Nesima are sure to impress.

The shallow and easy shore entries make Dahab an excellent diving destination for most divers. Weave between the table corals and pinnacles at the Islands or hunt out sea horses and morays at the Lighthouse. A haven for macro life, photographers will be right at home on any of Dahab's many reefs. But why stop there? The Canyon and Blue Hole are more advanced dives but quite unlike anything else in the Egyptian Red Sea. Here the natural topography is as much the wonder as the marine life with huge hard corals and dramatic splits in the rock face. There is so much to discover here that you will soon understand why so many divers chose Dahab for their diving holidays time and time again.
Nesima Dive Club are one of the oldest dive clubs in Dahab. They mix up the right blend of relaxed and enjoyable diving with a constant look to diver safety. With PADI courses on offer right from your first bubbles underwater to Divemaster, there is always a course for your next holiday. The pool is on site, overlooking the sea, where you can complete open water qualifying dives.
- Intro dives to Divemaster PADI training
- Shore, boat or camel dives!
- Nitrox available
- Longstanding reputation
- Seafront location
Most diving in Dahab is from the shore but this is shore diving made simple. The jeep will transfer you and your kit to your next site, where the crew will help with the kitting up. All you have to do is stroll in and enjoy the dive! If you want to try out the most remote sites in Dahab, you can add to the adventure on a camel safari (local charges apply). Only a camel can access Ras Abu Galum but it is an unmissable dive and well worth the journey. Gabr E Bint is the main boat diving option in the area (local charges apply) as it is the fastest way to reach this seldom dived southern site.

A good place top stay in Dahab, the diving crew are exceptionally helpful. The hotel is a bit run down, it's in need of a makeover. The breakfast was adequate - nothing more than that. You get what you pay for. Gary Morris
