Away from the more popular tourist destination of Sharm El-Sheikh lies a quiet little town free of crowds and full of wonder. The road leading north from Sharm el-Sheikh, through dusty mountains, brings you to magical Dahab in South Sinai, Egypt. Once a quiet Bedouin fishing village, the area has recently found itself on the travel map as a unique destination for nature lovers. Kite surfing, diving and snorkeling, delicious, fresh caught seafood, camping within canyons and a slower pace of life are just a few of the local flavours on offer at Dahab, on the shores of the Red Sea. Aside from endless opportunities for nature lovers, it’s also the perfect destination for a digital respite.
