When: Taba is lovely at any time of year except the middle of summer when the mercury shoots up and regularly hits 40ºC.
Where: Taba's proximity to some of the most important ancient sites in the ancient world mean that it is a great destination for history buffs and culture vultures. Luxor and Cairo are within a days trip and display some of the finest achievements of the Pharaonic period whilst the stunning rock-hewn Nabatean city of Petra is also within reach.
Why: See the Pyramids at Giza, the great Sphinx and the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and be back at your hotel in time for a pre-dinner dip in the Red Sea. It doesn't get much better than that!
When: Taba can be gorgeous in the middle of winter. Temperatures are often in the mid to high twenties and make a welcome relief from the Great British winter! Why not see in the new year here?
Where: The Israeli resort town of Eilat is just a forty minute drive away and boasts a vibrant nightlife with lots of bars, restaurants, live music venues and night clubs. It also offers some great shopping opportunities.
Why: Taba will be a truly unforgettable holiday for you and your friends! Enjoy a luxurious and relaxing time on the beach and in the spas or venture out to the Red Sea and the wild deserts of Jordan's Wadi Rum.
When: Taba is probably at its most lovely in the early spring and in the autumn but is pleasant all year round. Be sure to try to avoid European school holidays in order to miss the crowds!
Where: The Sinai Desert is the stuff of great romance and you'll have ample opportunity to explore it during your stay at Taba Heights. The resorts offer jeep safaris and you'll also have the option of exploring the desert on camel back like the bedouins of old!
Why: There are some truly magnificent places to see in the Sinai Desert. The ruins of the Zaman Castle is a stunning sight, set against the Red Sea shore. The Coloured Canyon is also a must see and you shouldn't miss the opportunity to see the sun rise from the top of the Moses Mountain
When: The midsummer temperatures will certainly be too much for young children to withstand. Try heading out in the Easter holidays or the autumn half term. It is also a very nice christmas holiday destination.
Where: Taba offers a fantastic variety of opportunities for families. Kids will love the various water sports on offer whilst parents can hit the fairways of the Taba Heights Golf Course or enjoy treatments in the resorts' fantastic spas.
