Taba & Nuweiba

Taba is a frequent vacation spot for Egyptians and tourists, especially those from Israel on their way to others destinations in Egypt or as a weekend getaway. The place attract tourists with its "Aqaba Coast Area of Sinai", ( stretching from Taba down to Sharm el Sheikh, and including Nuweiba, St Catherine and Dahab ), marvelous diving spots where many people come to either free dive, scuba dive or learn to dive via the many PADI courses on offer and newly established desert style golf courses.

Just like Taba, Nuweiba attracts tourists with its diving spots and the desert activities one can do in the area, one of which is camping.Tarabin village, located not so far away from Nuweiba, is well known for its Bedouin-style camps where you can rent cheap huts with or without air conditioner. Quiet and beautiful, Tarabin is paradise for anyone willing to enjoy a good rest and fun holidays. Nevertheless all the camps don't offer the same quality (particularly the food). For a good restaurant, Petra camp is considered as the best in the village. It also offers huts with air conditioner pretty cheap regarding others (between 20-60 L.E. at summer).
