if you go from nweba3, you need 4x4 car, if you go from dahab, you will go to Blue Hole, then take camel to Ras abu galum, then car to blue lagoon. the car rent from nweba3 300 LE, camel from blue hole 50, and the car from abu galum to blue lagoon around 40. dont expect much service, and beware of drugs use, but also there is amazing kite surfing and wind surfing inside the camp.
