Chill beach times are calling. Start in Cairo but head straight for the beach in Dahab. All you have to do here is eat seafood, drink cocktails, snorkel, shop, maybe go on a jeep excursion in the desert… Life is sweeeeet.
This one’s all about lying on the beach, eating delicious stuff and getting terminally chill.
This beach journey starts in Cairo, with a bus straight to Dahab. Hang out at the beachside bars and restaurants tonight, get to know your fellow travellers over a few cocktails and get your bearings.
You're transferred from your hotel to the bus station where you catch the public air-conditioned bus to the Sinai
The journey to Dahab is a long one (around eight hours) and you can expect to arrive approximately 17:00 this afternoon. There are a couple of rest stops along the way
On arrival you are taken to your hotel and after checking in you're free to wander along the beachfront bars and restaurants.
Meals included: 2 breakfasts
You have two free days to relax, snorkel or shop. Do you fully understand just how awesome this is going to be? Really? Think about it. You can even organise windsurfing and jeep excursions into the desert. Mad.
Dahab is a great place to chill out. There’s good snorkelling, windsurfing and you can also arrange a day dive (providing you have your PADI certificate with you)
For non-divers there are heaps of other activities which can be arranged while you are there. These include a day trip to Mt. Sinai, a jeep safari into the desert or a camel ride. Prices generally depend on how many people are booking and of course you’ll need to haggle!
Meals included: 1 breakfast
Time to bus back to Cairo, where the trip comes to an end. Waa waa, we know. It sucks. Stay on for a few extra days if you want. We would.
Catch the air-conditioned bus back to Cairo where your trip ends around 17:00
