Bamboo Huts, Beautiful Beaches and Amazing Diving
Overwhelming views of Saudi Arabia’s soaring mountains beyond the Gulf of Aqaba, the inspiring Sinai Mountains as a backdrop, endless stretches of white powdery sand, secluded bays, crystal clear waters, incredible diving and a genuine natural feel that you might miss in other parts of the Egyptian Red Sea coast: welcome to Nuweiba, Sinai’s largest oasis, where fine-sand beaches are peppered with Bedouin beach tourist camps. Temperatures here see a winter average of 20°C and a summer average of 33°C.
Although it seems to be slowly shifting from the hippy-style “isolated desert oasis” status to the prominent beach resort city reality, Nuweiba is still a destination where you can unwind and relax away from the usual mass tourism hustle and bustle. It is also a perfect destination to go on exploration tours into the depths of the Sinai desert: explore St. Catherine’s Monastery, experience Mount Sinai trekking or explore the nearby Red Sea destinations such as Taba, Dahab and Sharm El-Sheikh. All these trips can be arranged from Nuweiba through a tour operator or with the help of your hotel desk.
If you’re more of a laid-back traveler, imagine an afternoon nap under a palm tree or in a bamboo hut set out on the beach – a favourite among backpackers – candle-lit dinners and barbecue parties, fresh seafood feasts at the town’s local restaurants, and most of all, great shore dives just a couple of palm strokes away: this is only a glimpse of what you might experience in Nuweiba.
