Holidays to Taba
If you want a break with guaranteed sunshine and are keen to venture a little further away than Egypt, then a holiday in Taba is the perfect choice for you. This is a small town near the Gulf of Aqaba and is the most northern resort on the Egyptian Red Sea Riviera.
Taba holidays are popular with both Egyptians and tourists and it is located just north of a protected area that is just waiting to be explored. It is home to 25 different types of animals, 50 kinds of rare birds and 24 different kinds of reptiles. The protected area also boasts geographical formations including caves, natural springs, valleys and mountainous areas. If you are looking for a break on which you can explore and see some stunning natural sights, then Taba is the destination for you.
What is more, you can join a tour group on a trip to the impressive Mount Sinai, which sits next to Mount St Catherine – the highest mountain in Egypt.
When it comes to accommodation, there is a large and very glamorous Hilton casino hotel, however there are plenty of other, more affordable, options for those on a more modest budget.
Taba also marks the southern border crossing between Egypt and Israel, so you can even venture into the neighbouring country if you have really got the bug for exploring. This is not a holiday for you if you want days spent lying on the beach before a night at a club. There is some beautiful surrounding scenery and incredible landscapes and a holiday in Taba would be wasted if you do not take advantage of the opportunity to see them.
