DAHAB BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Dahab (دهب) is a small touristic town situated on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.

Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, located approximately 80 km (50 miles) northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab is still considered to be one of the Sinai's most treasured diving destinations.

Dahab is actually very old, as a temporary settlement, and it even has its own archeological site, the Nabatean Harbour in the Mashraba area on the beach. You are not able to go onto the site, but you will be able to take pictures of it.

Following the Six Day War, the town was occupied by Israel and known in Hebrew as Di-Zahav, a place mentioned in the Exodus from Egypt. The Sinai Peninsula was restored to Egyptian rule in 1982.

The arrival of international hotel chains and the establishment of other ancillary facilities has now made this a popular destination with tourists.

The international airports are located at Sharm el-Sheikh in the south, and Taba to the north.
