Welcome to Nuweiba


Nuweiba these days isn't much of a looker. Stretching over 15km, it lacks a defined centre or cohesive ambience, and functions primarily as a port for the Aqaba-bound ferry to Jordan. Both the port and city areas are litter strewn, fly-blown and have an air of serious neglect. Tarabin itself has become ever-more ramshackle, which is a shame because with a little sprucing up it could easily be the mellow beach-camp paradise that Dahab was a decade ago.
