Dahab in detail


Dangers & Annoyances

After the Dahab suicide bombing of April 2006 (which killed 23 people and injured dozens), the government pumped up security within Dahab, and the town hasn't been targeted since. Dahab's location, however, within the greater South Sinai region, does mean that many government travel advisories currently warn against all but essential travel here. Although the potential for a future terrorist attack can never be wholly ruled out, it's important to emphasize that since the 2011 revolution, Dahab has remained one of Egypt’s most relaxed destinations and, within the town itself, has experienced no problems.
