The resort areas of Dahab, Taba and Nuweiba in South Sinai all combine the natural wonders of the Red Sea (swimming, snorkeling and diving) with an easygoing atmosphere.
Nuweiba is a haven of unspoiled beaches and clear skies, with the mountains behind the town and the Red Sea at your feet, and easy access to all the attractions of Sinai.
Dahab features many waterside restaurants, cafes and hotels and attracts many backpackers with its moderately-priced accommodation.
Taba is situated at the border crossing between Egypt and Israel. Nearby Taba Heights offers a string of five star hotels, and new attraction the Salt Cave, constructed of salt from the Dead Sea and Siwa Oasis.
SHARM EL SHEIKH in South Sinai, is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt.
The scenery is incredible, deep-blue sea and majestic desert mountain ranges. Less than 20 years ago, it was just a small fishing village. Now there is a wide range of fine resorts and hotels in this year-round holiday destination.
It has some of the finest diving spots in the world, and the reefs of Tiran and Ras Mohamed can be reached by boat within two hours. There is a vast wealth of marine life in these fascinating underwater worlds. And above water, there is much to see and do, especially if you like the peace and beauty of the desert.
