Taba City Overview

Taba is one of the most remarkable cities in Egypt, it is located at the top of the Aqaba Gulf between the mountains and plateaus of Eastern Taba. The population of Taba doesn’t exceed more than 10,000 people with a surface area of around 500 acres. Taba is located around 240 kilometers to the North of Sharm El Sheikh, 717 kilometers to the South East of Cairo, and more than 1000 kilometers away from Hurghada.

Taba has always had a significant importance during various periods of Egyptian history. The beginning was during the conflict between Egypt and the Ottoman Empire. This was in regards of the borders of Sinai as the Ottomans wanted to take Taba as part of Palestine as it was part of the Ottoman Empire at the time. The conflict was resolved by assigning the Egyptian borders from Taba in the South to Rafah in the North.

A similar problem occurred between the Egyptians and Israelis. After Egypt defeated the Israeli forces that occupied Sinai from 1967 till 1973, a problem emerged when the Israeli authorities wanted to take Taba. This was why the two parties resorted to international arbitration. In 29th of September 1988, the arbitration committee issued a decree to give Egypt the right to have Taba under its control and Egypt factually took Taba in the 15th of March 1989, which became a public holiday afterwards.

Today, Taba enjoys many wonderful beaches and resorts that grab the attention of many travelers who tour Egypt to enjoy their vacations in the city.
