Egypt: Dahab

Dahab is a small bedouin village at the Gulf of Aqaba (90 km north of Sharm-El-Sheikh). Dahab means gold in Arabic, and it is a real treasure for windsurfers! The temperature differences in the desert ensures thermal reinforcement of the wind in summer, making Dahab the windiest spot close to Europe. Only 3-4 hour flight - and you'll find the magnificant windsurfing spot with 3 surf areas with different conditions, good wind and warm water.

Dahab Windsurfing

Dahab is situated in the wind chanel of the Gulf of Aqaba. Because of pressure differences between the hot dessert and the sea, the wind is blowing at almost 300 days a year at 4 Bft. and above, providing perfect conditions for windsurfing.
