Taba is a small Egyptian village situated in the Aqaba Bay’s North. It is the most crowed point from the border with Israel. The location is small, with a bus station and a luxurious hotel (with a casino) and it serves as a transit point for the tourists coming from Israel to the Egypt’s destinations or for the weekend’s trips to casino and diving. Taba is also the Northern part of the Egyptian Riviera. This place has a small population of Bedouins. Taba had a small role in history, being the last territory from Sinai who was given back to Egypt, in 1979 according to the peace treatise between Israel and Egypt. Taba was on the Egyptian part of the armistice in 1949 and it was returned in 1957 when Israel withdrew from Egypt. Still, when Israel reoccupied Sinai again, after the 6 days war in 1968, a hotel of 400 rooms was built in Taba. And again, after Egypt won again the control of this territory, after the Yom Kippur war in 1073, Egypt and Israel negotiated the exactly position of the border. After a long dispute, the subject went to the international commission composed from representatives of Israel, Egypt and of other countries. In 1988 the commission decided in Egypt’s favor and Israel returned Taba in the same year. Part of this agreement was that the Israel` s tourists can visit Taba without a visa, for 48 hours and that’s how Taba became a popular tourist point. The Taba Heights resort is situated in the village’s South and has some big hotels like Sofitel and Hyatt Regency. Taba is also an important diving center for beginners and for the experienced ones. There you can also practice the desert golf.
