With an amazing backdrop of Mount Sinai this resort is well placed for anyone who wishes to make the most of everything the Red Sea Riviera offers, and is traditionally a crossing point and hosts trips to not to be missed to places such as Cairo and Jordan.

If you have just come to relax and make the most of the climate, then laze your day away on one of the fabulous beaches it hosts whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the precipitous mountains.

One of the main attractions of this area is the stunning array of fish, so snorkeling and scuba diving is usually the main reason to visit here.

Taba is specifically known for how easy its intriguing neighbouring resorts are to access including the stunning Sinai desert and Dahab.

You could even catch sight of octopus, dolphins and an array of fish at one of its nature reserves. For an adrenaline pushing experience why not try out one of its jeep safaris or para-sailing?

A lot of eating out is hotel based in Taba, but if you are willing to travel to Marsa Alam or Hurghada then there are an amazing array of restaurants and food choices.
