Magnificent beaches and coral reefs of Nuweiba are the most common draw of this town. The bay is home to a number of resorts and tourist villages

This coastal resting spot has drawn travellers for centuries, having long been an important port for Muslim pilgrims en route to Mecca. The city is divided into three parts. From southward one can find the port, the city and Tarabin, the Beduin camp. Nuweiba city lacks a center, but has a small strip of cheap restaurants, an internet cafe and some souvenir shops. To the north, there are basic camps. Many small beach camps along the sand dunes make Nuweiba a popular holiday destination for backpackers and budget travellers. Nuweiba has neighbouring Bedouin villages, which attract young, low-budget holiday makers. The hotels in Nuweiba offer discos, live music and entertainment, with popular evening trips including a traditional Bedouin dinner in the desert.
Also at Nuweiba el-Tarabin are the ruins of the great fortress of Tarabin, constructed at the outset of the 16th century by the Mameluke sultan Ashraf Qansouh el-Ghouri. Nuweiba offers diving and snorkeling from the camps and hotels. Better snorkeling and diving is found at Ras Shaitan, a short car ride north of Tarabin. Besides the diving, you will also find camel and jeep adventurers. Day trips from Nuweiba include St. Katherine Monastery and Mount Sinai and mini-tours to Coloured Canyon and White Canyon. Ferries leave Nuweiba Port regularly for Jordan and Petra.
