Holiday & Travel Guide For Taba, Egypt

Taba is on the border of Egypt and Israel, on the Egyptian side. It is a small town, but one that is popular with both locals and holiday makers. Taba, is not the most action packed place in the world, but the Egyptian setting is stunning and you can always use it as somewhere you stop for a few days, before moving on to other resorts in Egypt, or up into Israel.

Taba is a romantic holiday town, which is good for couples, or groups of adults, but may not have enough to do for families who are looking for a nice break. There are a few things to do in the region though if you do not mind going out of Taba itself on some days. You will find trips on offer include places such as Mount Sinai and Petra. You can also head to Beer Sweer, 15km south, for some nice beach areas with eating establishments and straw huts to relax in.

Another place it is a great idea to go and visit is Castle Zaman. Because of the raised location, you can see into 4 countries from this tall castle and spend some lovely time at the bar or relaxing by the pool there. With a gift shop offering a great deal of items to buy for friends and family back home, you can tick several of the key boxes for your holiday here: seeing something breathtaking, getting souvenirs, relaxing and soaking up some sun. Many tourists who visit the castle come back urging others to go and see it if they are in the region, so it really does come with high recommendations. This is an adult only kind of sight though, as there is drinking and not any child friendly activities on offer to keep little ones entertained.

Taba is a great place for an adult holiday, as the famous Hilton hotel there also has a casino, Casino City, which is what draws many people in to Taba. The hotel itself has 11 stories and includes a diving centre as well, the casino is the main draw though. This is an excellent hotel to stop at if you can afford it, with all the modern amenities you need and an interesting array of activities on site plus a private beach available to residents.

Red Sea diving is one reason tourists flock to Taba. Red Sea Water World is in Taba Heights, which is an area where development is booming, in order to help locals have better facilities to integrate them into a tourist area, and also to offer some new features to Taba in general. There are 6 hotels as well as a diving centre and water sports, as mentioned, which are nestled in amongst the scenic mountain scenery of the area. Red Water Sea World offers diving with qualified instructors, and will teach you everything that you need in order to be able to have a fun day in the water and see some nice sights. If you are into sports, but prefer something less active, then why not try the Three Corners El Wekala Resort Golf Course for a nice relaxing day on a fantastic course nestled in Taba Heights.

Happy Holidays

River Rafting – Greymouth Called either white water or black water rafting. You float through an underground galaxy world of glow worms and you can add some more adventure and adrenaline with an optional cliff jump or an abseil down to the top of the river tubing section followed by a relaxing hot shower

Skydive in Lake Wanaka
If you’re afraid of falling then jumping out of a plane this is probably not your idea of a fun time. But take comfort in the fact that you’ll be strapped to a professional who is doing all the work for you (and pushes you out of the plane – hiding under a seat wont’ help) You will never forget the awesome views – so go for it – it will change your life forever

Bungee jump in Queenstown
If you’re scared of heights, there is no better way to sort that out than getting tied to a rubber cord and jumping off a really high bridge over a raging river. Bungee was invented in New Zealand (where else) and you can take a dive from the original site near Queenstown.

Swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura – South Island
We hope you haven’t seen the movie Jaws when you were little because you might not want to swim in the ocean but swimming with dusky dolphins might change your perspective againOrganised Boat tours from Kaikoura take you into the open ocean where you can jump in with a pod and watch them up close in their own environment. And if you are still reluctant you might get lucky – all tours are weather dependent

Glacier-walking at Fox Glacier
A guided hike on Fox Glacier is literally a cool and cold experience Spilling down from the Southern Alps Fox Glacier almost makes it all the way to the sea. Ice crevasses and odd-looking formations – a walk on the glacial tongue is money well spent. If you want you can take a Helicopter flight – they can take you up even further and are even able to land on the glacier.
