Join us for an orientation tour starting at the Coral Coast Hotel in Eel Garden. From there, we’ll take a short wander from Eel Garden into the Bedouin village of Asilah, famous among locals for its authenticity and snap shots of real life. We’ll head into the Masbat old town, where there’s a variety of restaurants and coffee shops, all with stunning beach access and wonderful views.
Finally we will visit a local café that’s popular for its fresh fruit juices and thick shakes. We’ll settle in for a drink if you like (at your own expense but your local friend can give you some recommendations and tips on how to order) and you’ll be free to chat with new friends, make some plans together for later on, and ask any questions you like of our knowledgeable Dahab expert.
Think of it as a city introduction tour, travellers’ meet-up, and info desk all rolled into one — get the tips you need to know from those who are in-the-know, then kick back and relax with some new friends in a new city. There’s no better way to tap into local life in Dahab!
