Lighthouse is one of the most popular sites in Dahab due to easy access and suitability for all water sport activities. It is a central location in Dahab’s Masbat Bay.
The entry is from the beach and is easy in all conditions. Follow the slope down to your maximum depth and swim over sandy bottom and around hard coral pinnacles. Shallow up slowly while keeping the shallows on your left until you reach the saddle, a rich coral structure that separates the bay from the northern, more exposed shore. Turn around and shallow to around 10-12 metres with the reef on your right, and enjoy the sights and the reef wall full of crevices and hidden creatures.
The Lighthouse dive site and the bay are an excellent site for night diving; all of the south area of the Lighthouse is a bay rich in sandy areas and dense seagrass patches until the Mashraba dive site.
Sights: napoleons, crocodilefish, parrotfish, surgeonfish, octopus, seahorses, groupers, turtles, rays, scorpionfish…
