I have never seen reefs as healthy and abundantly populated with fish as in the Red Sea. We did a night snorkel and the diversity of life was absolutely breathtaking. Dahab is the freediving Mecca for all of Europe. The legendary blue hole there, it's really more of an arch, is open on the bottom to the Red Sea. I kept he...
