Coral Reefs in Dahab
We first visited Dahab in about 2000 and were stunned by the amazing coral and fish in the area. We have been every year since and have been saddened by it's deterioration. We had assumed that it was being destroyed by divers and snorkelers whom we have seen handling the coral, kicking it, standing on it etc Unfortunately I could not get the video to play so cannot access your opinions on the issue.
