Taba, excellent beaches, superb diving, fantastic weather.
Taba lies close to the meeting point of Jordan, Israel, and Saudi Arabia and as such proves to be the only place in the world from which you can simultaneously view three other countries. The resort was once a Phoenician port, to be later occupied by Crusaders. Taba now takes advantage of her prime location to attract travellers. Visitors vary from businessmen passing through to ones who seek a less crowded destination for watersports and relaxation on the beach. This stretch of coastline is one of the most picturesque in the Sinai, where you will be spoilt with awe-inspiring mountain backdrops, long stretches of golden sand, scenic bays, languid lagoons, azure costline and breath-taking views over to Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Experience it for yourself. Taba really is the territorial jewel in a geographical crown.
The resort itself is made up of three sections, Taba, to the south, Taba Heights, in the middle and Taba borders, to the north. Taba makes a fantastic base from which to explore the abundance of sights within the surrounding area, including diving.
One of the main attractions is the amazing Pharaoh's Island, which holds the preserved remains of a fortress once occupied by Sultan Salah El-Din. Like many coastal cities in Egypt, scuba diving and snorkelling remain the first order of the day in Taba. Many fascinating and colourful reefs lay just off Pharaoh's Island, and underwater canyons of various depths off the coast allow the adventurous to experience a myriad of sea life.
If an underwater exploration is not your thing, then a land adventure to St. Catherine's Monastery should be on your itinerary. The 3rd century monastery offers over 200 icons, vivid frescoes, and a collection of ancient manuscripts for the curious-minded.
