Dahab in detail

Flights & getting there

Bus

The East Delta bus station is in Dahab City, well southwest of the action. East Delta also has a ticket office in Masbat. Buses will pick up passengers from here; double-check when booking. Departure times change frequently so always check a day beforehand.

The Go Bus office is conveniently central, just west of Masbat's footbridge.

Taxi

Unfortunately, because of security issues, the local pick-up taxis are no longer allowed to operate outside the Dahab area. Taxis touting for business to Nuweiba (LE200), Sharm El Sheikh airport (LE250) and St Katherine's (LE300 to LE350) are always hanging out at the East Delta bus station. They can also be booked through your hotel or a travel agency in town.
