Taba is a small town in Egypt near the Gulf of Aqaba, but most people travel there to get to Taba Heights, a peaceful resort on the Red Sea. Holidays in Taba are great for sun worshippers, with the Red Sea, beautiful deserts and mountains all close by. There are direct Taba flights from London and Manchester, with a travel time of about six hours. From the airport, it's a short journey to one of the many luxury resorts and car hire from Taba Airport is readily available.
Taba holidays are more about scenery and relaxation than touring in the Egyptian heat, so it's best to settle into a modern hotel with all mod cons and sip refreshing drinks by the pool. You can usually book cheap holidays to Taba if you look well in advance or grab a late deal, with deals on rooms at the Marriott, Intercontinental and Hyatt Regency. The coastline to the north and south of the Heights offers greater privacy.
Holidays in Taba are really all about relaxation and sunshine. A wide range of water based activities such as diving and snorkelling are good for cooling off. At present, it's not a great base for exploring the rest of Egypt, because local flights are limited. If you just want to chill, take dips in the pool or sea and have the guarantee of great weather, Taba is ideal.
