Blue Lagoon, Dahab Dahab; or as some people prefer to call it the “Secret Escape from Egypt” as it was one of the few places untouched by tourism (though not more) that remains one of the most relaxing, simple and wonderful places in Egypt. The blue lagoon of Dahab is not located next to any popular tourist destination in a natural park, which I think Dahab was a few decades ago, before Dahab became as popular as it is today, when there was nothing but small khush, Bedouin families, animals and some hippies. . Because the crystal clear water is so flat and the wind is stronger than in the center, Dahab’s Blue Lagoon has been called a kitesurfer’s paradise.
At sunset, I like to take a short mountain walk to the Blue Lagoon, but you can climb the cliffs and enjoy the sunrise OR sunset with views of the entire Blue Lagoon, sea and mountains.

This made the Notable Death the most famous death at the site, and one of the most famous underwater deaths in the world. The Blue Hole itself is no more dangerous than any other Red Sea dive site, but diving through the Arch, an underwater tunnel located within the Blue Hole, is an extreme dive that has resulted in many accidents and casualties. The most infamous diving site in Dahab is the Blue Hole, which is 107 meters deep and has an arch leading to the reef wall at a height of 58 meters. This place is considered the most dangerous diving site on earth and the arch of the Blue Hole. If you are adventurous and want to dive somewhere where you can really put your scuba skills to good use, then a well-known diving spot is the infamous Dahab Blue Hole.
There are many different dives that can be done in Dahab, so research carefully and decide what dives you want to do and what depths you can dive.

Most of Dahab’s coral reefs are designed for shore diving, making it easy to dive – just enter the sea from the beach and Dahab’s waters will be protected from exhaust gases and noise pollution from dive boats. Dahab has many beautiful snorkeling spots such as table corals and impressive fish life.
The combination of sea and desert makes Dahab an ideal place for windsurfing, scuba diving, freediving, rock climbing and of course desert trekking with Bedouin jeeps or camels. The beach has a Bedouin settlement and crystal clear waters for great snorkeling or scuba diving. Lots of infamous kitesurfers hang out here, so you can admire the ease with which they glide across the crystal clear water and jump with their kites in the air.
The Dahab Blue Hole is not adorned with beautiful enclosures and you will not find an abundance of marine life here. Diving into the Blue Hole in Dahab, you will face some of the toughest diving conditions and experience something truly extraordinary. Make sure that this sense of security doesn’t distract you from everything you’ve learned as you prepare to dive into the Dahab Blue Hole. The fame of the Dahab Blue Hole as possibly the deadliest diving site on Earth does not deter divers, but rather attracts them in the same way that climbing Mount Everest or Kilimanjaro attracts climbers.
Because it is an easy and well known dive site, divers quickly think they can make the dive safe. Since 1982, the Blue Hole has become very popular and recreational divers dive almost every day. In 1968, a group of Israeli divers led by Alex Schell dived into the pit for the first time using modern scuba diving.
Tarek Omar’s death rate has increased in recent years as technical diving, a type of diving that often involves breathing special gas mixtures, has become more popular.

Perhaps the most famous diver to die in the Blue Hole, a Russian-Israeli diving instructor became a household name in diving in 2000 after his death was captured on a helmet camera.

The Blue Lagoon is an even more amazing and remote location, located another 8 km north of Ras Abu Galum, known for its stunning crystal clear waters and remote location. It really is an escape from the modern world.
