Regaldive Offers New Egyptian Red Sea Destination Abu Dabbab

For those looking for superb diving away from the crowds, specialist operator Regaldive is newly offering Abu Dabbab Diving Lodge on Egypt’s Red Sea coast. Comprised of a collection of wooden bungalows, the Lodge is far removed from the usual big resorts offered on this stretch of coastline. Abu Dabbab’s location also means that it opens up dive sites usually only the preserve of liveaboards, such as nearby Elphinstone reef, with its silvertip sharks and pods of dolphins, one of Egypt’s most celebrated sites.

Abu Dabbab Diving Lodge

Abu Dabbab Diving Lodge is a charming and characterful choice for divers in the sought after location of Abu Dabbab Bay, a sweeping bay of white sand fringed by coral reefs. A welcome change from nearby resorts, the Lodge features 62 wooden bungalows set amongst gardens of tropical plants. Informal and relaxing, each bungalow has a double bed and bathroom, while the Lodge also boasts an outdoor pool, restaurant and 1km-long private beach.

The Lodge and its diving centre, both run by Blue Ocean, have access to the excellent house reef from one of Egypt’s finest beaches. Here, divers have a chance to see dugong or green turtles feasting on the seagrass.

The calm conditions make the location suitable for divers of all abilities and for families on their first diving holiday, however, Abu Dabbab’s biggest draw is its proximity to some of the southern Red Sea’s finest dive sites, usually accessible only by liveaboard. The celebrated island reef of Elphinstone with its teeming marine life is only 25 minutes away by speed boat, where experienced divers might expect to see scalloped hammerhead sharks, colourful corals and barracuda.

Price: from £615pp sharing, including return flights from the UK, 20kg luggage allowance, transfers, 7 nights’ half board and the services of the Regaldive team in Egypt. Diving is extra: 3 days unlimited house reef and 4 speedboat trips costs approximately £255.
