    Hi Amanda, thanks so much for all this information! I am planning to take the bus from Taba to Sharm El Sheikh in January, and now I am debating staying a night or so in Dahab as well. Would you be able to define what makes Dahab such a special and different place from Sharm El Shiekh?

    A main reason for why I plan to go to Sharm is so that I can get a significantly more affordable flight to Cairo (as opposed to any airport in Israel or Jordan). However, if the bus to Sharm from Dahab is only $1, then maybe it’s preferable to stay in Dahab instead?

      Hey Matt! So glad you found the post. I would definitely stay a night or two in Dahab if you can. I think what makes Dahab so special is that it is a completely chilled place that’s not full of resorts or fancy hotels. Beaches aren’t private so you can just jump into the water wherever you want, it’s cheap and there’s great food around. I also freedive so it’s hard to pass up since Dahab is one of the best places in the world for it 🙂 You should go! Amanda

    I loved Egypt (went in 2010) but never made it to the Red Sea destinations. Will definitely check out Dahab when I return. I normally only hear of Sharm or Hurghada in the Red Sea. Great post and thanks for the inspo!

      No worries Dina. Definitely visit Dahab – it’s so different from Sharm!

    Dahab looks and sounds like a dream…like probably many others, I would LOVE to visit Egypt but just question my safety. I would love more advice on this? From what you’ve said it sounds perfectly safe, but would love to hear more!
