Taba Heights Marina / Red Sea/Taba Heights
Located close to Saudi Arabia and Jordan by sea, through the Gulf of Aqaba, Taba Heights is fast becoming the new upscale port of entry on the Red Sea.
Before the marina completion, seafarers had to check in at more distant ports, such as Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada and Alexandria, to cruise the Egyptian waters but now, the marina at Taba Heights offers you the opportunity to end your Red Sea journey in the inspiring Gulf of Aqaba and explore the Sinai Peninsula.
The marina provides secure moorings, top-of-the-range maintenance service and all the amenities one can expect in such a venue.

Sharks Bay / Red Sea/Sharm El Sheikh
Sharm El Sheikh residents describe the picturesque Sharks bay as still having the feel of how Sharm used to be before the arrival of large scale tourism: a laid-back, friendly and relaxing spot with stunning views of Tiran Island and the marina.
Different stories are told about the bay’s name origin; some say that until about 12 years ago, there were actually sharks inhabiting the bay, others say that in fact some tourists had mistaken mantas for sharks there and hence the name, whereas another version of the story tells that local fishermen used to unload their catch of sharks right at this bay. Whatever the right story might be, one thing is sure; there are no sharks in Sharks Bay today
Times have evolved from back when you could see camels walking along the beach between the cafes and the sea but the spot is still as paradisiacal and authentic as it might get and it boasts some of the best diving and snorkelling spots in Sharm El Sheikh. Diving centres on site cater to all levels of divers, and there’s a wide range of water activities on offer for those of you who don’t like diving. Banana and Donut rides, wake-boarding, surfing and water-skiing are only a few of the available options.
