The Blue Hole, Dahab
Egypt

The Blue Hole in Dahab (Sinai) is without doubt one of the most famous dive sites in Egypt. Blue Holes are created when the main reef collapses inwards, leaving a more or less huge deep circular hole all the way to the bottom. Tragically, every year some divers lose their lives during this dive and some have never been recovered. The many commemorating wall plates in the rocks near the entrance to the site serve as a sharp reminder for the many thousands of scuba divers, who visit this site each year, that this dive should never be underestimated.
