Blue Hole to Ras Abu Gallum hike
This trail skims the narrow shoreline from Dahab’s Blue Hole bay into the national park of Ras Abu Gallum. Despite a lack of signage or way-marking, it’s easily hiked independently and navigational skills aren’t necessary. You’re simply following the thin thread of coast, squeezed between rocky cliffs to the west and the Red Sea to the east. The path is rocky underfoot but mostly flat and well-defined. At the hike's northern end, within Ras Abu Gallum, several Bedouin beach-camps are scattered along the sand, up to the curved cove of the Blue Lagoon. The camps provide meals and basic, back-to-nature hoosha (palm-thatch) hut accommodation if you want to stay the night before hiking back.
