The Red Sea and Sinai region
The Sinai is steeped in history and Dahab is a great base from which to explore it. Visit St Katherines monastery which still houses the biblical burning bush and is located at the base of Mount Sinai where moses received the 10 commandments. Climb the mountain and see the sunrise.
There are also crusader castles, tombs and many natural wonders - Oasis' and canyons to explore. Take a camel ride into the mountains and eat a traditional bedouin meal under the stars, round an open fire.
Theres just as much to explore under the water with the beautiful coral reef stretching along the coast and many beachfront cafes to relax in between dips.
Dahab, an oasis of palms between the sinai mountains and the blue waters of the Red Sea was until quite recently a small bedouin village and a favourite spot for travellers to relax. Still something of a secret It has developed into a unique holiday destination with plenty of bohemian charm retaining its village feel and laid back attitude.
A worldclass destination for both windsurfing and scuba diving, other popular activities include yoga, horse riding, kite surfing , snorkelling, kayaking, climbing, sailing and desert safari's to explore the history and beauty of the sinai desert.
Or just come for a relaxing break far removed from the built up resorts and the madding crowd.

"Beautiful apartments with fantastic service - nothing was too much trouble!"
From the moment we arrived at the property, the service was friendly, and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, and whenever we asked for something, or mentioned something that needed fixing, it was done immediately. All the staff working there were very approachable, and available whenever we needed help or advice.
The apartments were beautifully furnished, and we had all the equipment we needed. In particular, I found the beds and bedding really comfortable. We had taken a 15 month old baby with us, and they provided everything we needed for her before we had even asked; cot with mosquito net, baby bath, baby monitor (so that we could sit on the roof terrace and stargaze in the evening), high chair, and a box of toys for her to play with. She had the time of her life! The roof terraces are beautiful, and have stunning views.
They also had snorkelling equipment, buckets and spades, kayaks (which they carried down to the beach), a barbeque and DVDs for us to use at any time.
The apartments are in a great location, a ten minute walk along the promenade from most of the hotels and hostels, and right next to the square, where you can buy fresh veg and fish, hang out and drink coffeee and chat with local people. They are also one minute from the sea, with incredible snorkelling right there (there is a beach, but with quite coarse sand - OK for the baby to play on though).
We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday - it surpassed all our expectations!

"What a gem!"
Having read the excellent Trip Advisor reviews before travelling we had very high expectations of the Sea Stars apartments and were not disappointed. You really couldn't wish for a better base for a self-catering holiday in Dahab. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and convenient with lovely views of the mountains and sea. Tim was extremely welcoming and helpful, always willing to answer questions, offer advice and suggest the best places to go with our three children. Abdu and Hassan were on hand to help arrange taxis, carry kayaks etc, a great team! We will certainly be recommending Sea Stars to our friends and we hope to return there again.
