this is a great spot to waste a day, chill at a cafe, sit on a sun lounge, go snorkeling. Pretty impressive the blue hole is only a few meters from the shore! I hired a bike from dahab and rode there, was a great way to see it. Plenty of fish to be seen for the snorkelers (me)

You don't need to be a technical diver to appreciate the beauty of the blue hole and bells reef areas as the colourful reefs are well within recreational diving limits. However with additional training you might choose the dive the arch. A dive you'll never forget.

If you're in Dahab it would be rude not to visit the blue hole. I have only snorkelled here but will be back to dive it at some point. The only down side is the food and drink at the cafes next to it is fairly pricey, but that's what you get when you're at a tourist hot spot, and... More

Place have a vibrant atmosphere with nice coffee shops and something to eat also few shops with Egyptian souvenirs etc. We came for a day to Dahab so we unfortunately did not dive only snorkel this time so as a...

Probably better for divers than snorkellers as a lot of the surface coral is dead. A bit of walk to enter the sea from where you leave your belongings

It's bit the blue hole that's truly amazing as a diver, but more the outside wall starting at the Bells dive slot and making your way around the wall and then ending cutting through the blue hole. It does feel crazy and you can't see anything but blue and darkness when in the middle of the. Blue hole.

This is a top dive with an abundance of wildlife, the entry point at Ells bells is small and when we got there we were overwhelmed by the amount of people who were obstructing the entry point, some were snorkelling and others were just standing around getting in the way which you can do without after you have been walking...
