OK Great, but where do I stay?
We will be staying in a traditional and authentic Dahab Camp that supplies plenty of hospitality and a good vibe. If you’re looking for a good time relaxing on the seafront in a nice Bedouin camp atmosphere and don’t mind small, clean and simple rooms. We have the biggest swimming pool right in front of us, it’s called the Red Sea and contains some of the most beautiful creatures on Earth. Early morning swims and snorkeling await you.
Our camp offers a location that dreams are made of. Right on the beach, with a view across the Gulf of Aqaba to Saudi Arabia, that is clearly visible on the horizon. There is almost always a gentle cooling breeze that helps to ward off the heat of the glowing Egyptian sun.
We have a camp restaurant that is open from early in the morning till early evening. It is not haute cuisine, but very tasty and boasts the best tea in Dahab. (BigB approved!)
If you are looking for something a little more upmarket, we offer higher-end options! We have a beautiful 3 star guesthouse available as well as a very styling hotel in Dahab.
