Taba, "The gateway to Sinai" is a beautiful, fast growing resort 75 km north of Nuweiba. Well known for its charming bays and coastline, tourism has blossomed recently with the opening of its International Airport, which has direct flights from many parts of Europe. The 12th century fortress of Saladin on Pharaoh's Island is a joy to visit as it is in a remarkable condition.
It is surrounded by blue and turquoise waters and its reefs are a paradise for snorkelers and divers.
Just 50 km south of Taba is the stunning Colored Canyon, a marvel of the natural world and a kaleidescope of color. The Fjord, another spectacular site, just 15 km south of Taba, is a delightful and protected bay with stunning coral refs and unforgettable scenery.
