Nuweiba (also known as Nuwaybi) is a resort area on the Sinai Peninsula, on the shore of the Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea.  It is 200 km north east of Sharm El-Sheikh.

It is an e
xcellent place for diving. It has fantastic sandy beaches and beautiful coral seas.

There are a number of representative hotels in Nuweiba; Hilton, etc.   However, this small town is not as popular with tourists as Sharm El-Sheikh.  Perhaps, one day it will be become as popular as Sharm El Sheikh and other well known resorts on the Red Sea,  

To sum it up, Nuweiba is a quiet, unassuming resort, mainly for family holidays.

Israel, the Coloured Canyon and Jordan - which is just a short ferry's journey away, are all within close proximiity.  Tourists often take up the opportunity of visiting Jordan whilst here, and enjoy the many attractions it has to offer.
