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 snorkellers and divers.
Just 50 km south of Taba is the stunning Coloured Canyon,
a marvel of the natural world and a kaleidescope of colour.
The Fjord, another spectacular site, just 15 km south
of Taba, is a delightful and protected bay with stunning
coral refs and unforgettable scenery.
