Kitesurfing in Dahab, Red seaDahab "gold" in Arabic language, is a small town situated on the South East coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, located approximately 80 km North East of Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab is considered to be one of the Sinai's most treasured diving and snorkeling destinations and is famous for its windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Dahab is known as the heart of Yoga in Egypt. Yoga found its natural home in Dahab when, not long ago, people from the hippie-movement travelled there looking for an alternative lifestyle. Today there are more and more yoga courses and classes offered as travellers and locals seek the natural spirituality and beauty that this wonderful area offers. Its central location, with the nearby Blue Hole and Canyon, both internationally famous freedive and scubadive spots, allows you to also enjoy land based activities such as camel, horse, jeep and quad bike trips. Mount Sinai is a two hours drive, with Saint Catherine's Monastery being a popular tourist destination.

In recent years, Dahab has facilitated the arrival of a wider range of tourists, many of whom visit this quieter, less well-known area, specifically to partake in yoga, kitesurfing, windsurfing and diving or just to simply unwind and soak up the spiritual energy of nature found here.

Don’t miss your chance to get to know Dahab, the small authentic town on the Red Sea.
