Taba Egypt Holidays

Taba Holidays – A quiet resort overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba

A small town located on the northern tip of the Gulf of Aqaba, Taba offers a Red Sea experience without the crowds of larger resorts such as Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada. The resort is located on the border of Egypt and Israel; a sort of halfway point between the Middle East and Africa. The dusty red Sinai mountains form a stunning backdrop to pristine white sandy beaches, lapped by the crystal clear Red Sea waters.

The town itself consists of little more than a handful of large, 5-star all-inclusive hotel complexes, a small adjoining village and a large casino (located in the Hilton). You won’t find British themed pubs, blaring music or strip neon lighting here; nightlife and dining are very much hotel-based, with the huge resort complexes providing everything a guest could need for a luxury break.

Popular excursions include trips to the Lost City of Petra and the Pyramids of Giza, as well as the nearby Castle Zaman. Camel and jeep safaris, as well as Bedouin moonlight feasts can be arranged at your hotel. Taba is also an excellent place for scuba diving, with regular trips out to the spectacular world-famous Red Sea coral reefs.

Taba holidays are great for couples looking for a relaxing, all-inclusive style break. Families with small children or teenagers will prefer the livelier resort of Sharm el Sheikh, while for cultural holidays Aswan or Luxor are more suitable.
