dahab on low budget

Overview

Quote:
Best think to do in Dahab is to do nothing. You can just sit there and watch the sea, or you can snorkel at the lagoon, even when the wind blows and the waves are normally high. The locals are extremely friendly, no hustle at all. The food is great and reasonably cheap, although more expensive than in the rest of Egypt.Quick Tips: Best accommodation for travelers is in the "camps". Auski camp is full of divers, is a bit too crowded, and the staff a bit too much money-oriented. Venus is no longer okay, having changed the manager. Good place is Dolphin camp, with manager called Mohammed. Very relaxed and with great cuisine. The prices are now all the same--15 pounds a hut, 30-40 a double room....Read More

Dolphin

Hotel

Quote:
It's a very relaxed place for all travellers, and even for small groups or a family. The service is okay. Check if the manager called Mohammed is still there. He's charming, intelligent, and a friendly guy.

Just have a sit there with the locals, order one of the pizzas for five pounds a piece, have a sakhlab and shisha (water pipe), watch the local TV hit parade, and observed the people on the main street.

Snorkeling

Attraction | "no name"

Quote:
It's the best way how to spend your time there. Just take your own snorkel when you go to Dahab or rent some in Dahab, but it's not worth it.
