On the southeast coast of the wonderful country of Egypt is a hidden gem, in the form of a small town named Dahab. A Dahab holiday gives the best of both worlds with the option to simply look out at the stunning views from a Dahab holiday rental villa, or indulge in some adrenalin-pumping activities, particularly watersports. A Dahab holiday is guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face ordinary life again.
A Dahab holiday is an excellent choice if you love to be near the sea and has a lot of watersports available. The town is renowned as an excellent windsurfing spot and attracts a lot of keen windsurfers to its beach. Other water activities available on a Dahab holiday include water skiing, scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming and kite surfing. If you prefer dry land, Dahab offers land based activities for you to enjoy including camel rides, horse riding, quad biking, mountain biking and hiking.
If you can prise yourself away from your luxurious Dahab holiday rental villa then there are some wonderful places to be explored in the area. About 2 hours away from the town is the religiously significant Mount Sinai. In the Christian religion, for example, this is the mountain on which Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. At the foot of Mount Sinai is the St. Catherine Monastery, which dates back as far as the 6th century and is filled with historical and religious items. One of the most important and holy parts of the monastery is the Chapel of The Burning Bush, said to hold the living descendent of the original Burning Bush. Even if you are not religious in any way, a walk up to the summit of Mount Sinai to watch the sunset is not to be missed.
If you are now considering booking a fantastic Dahab holiday rental villa then you will be able to enjoy some wonderfully warm weather. The summer months of July and August see temperatures of 33°c during the daytime. Even during the winter months of December and January the daytime temperature rarely falls below 18°C. The annual rainfall amount for the town is very low at 0.9 inches, with the wettest month being December.
Travellers on a Dahab holiday can start their trip by arriving at Sharm El Sheikh International Airport (SSH) which is approximately 59 miles away from the town.
