Taba is great it`s only a holiday tourist destination but from the beach you can look over to Isreal,Jordan and Saudi Arabia which is truly magical, also if you take advantage of the water sports centre there you can go para-sailing and look down on 4 different countries.
During the month of Ramadan please act in a proper and respectful behavior. These are things that are best not to do in public:
1. Eat, drink, or smoke during the day.
2. Drink Alcohol.
3. Play loud music.
Scuba Diving is available in Taba Heights Resort, but I personally never tried it. At £100 for just 30 minutes, it didn't seem quite worth it.
Though while I was checking out the advertised scuba diving I noticed the noisy Russians quite calmly floating in the sea just off the end of this pier. They had snorkels on and were obviously looking for fish. So the next day, snorkel in hand I headed for the same spot. Lo and behold as soon as I poped of the end of the pier I spotted some of the most colorful and beautiful fish in the world. I can't believe I was about to pay £100 for something I'd just seen for free !
Taba - Shamal Sina' - Egypt
I spent an amazing week at the Hyatt Regency Resort in Taba Heights. What made it so amazing was the scenery, I could see 4 countries just standing on the beach; Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. What also made it amazing was the fact that it almost felt like we had the hotel to ourselves. Just a couple of months prior the Taba Hilton was hit by a car bomb.
"Hyatt Regency Resort"
The Hyatt Regency Hotel is a 5* hotel resort in Taba Heights. It is modelled on a Nubian village, with terracotta buildings and domed roofs. The ultimate place to relax.
More people should take advantage of the fact that a visit to the Sinai Peninsula is not only an incredible experience but also it comes with a free visa, for stays of up to 15 days, there's certainly a lot you can fit into those 15 days as well. You could visit St. Catherine's monastery, take a little side trip to Israel or Jordan, or just laze about for 15 days soaking up the Egyptian sun.
Taba blue waters and sky
You can see in the picture (yes, even in this low quality picture taken with a pocket camera way back in 1995), the clear blue water of the Red Sea between the coasts of Israel, Jordan and Egypt. This year we decided to make a short visit over the border and enjoy the Egyptian hospitality.
