Welcome to Taba Heights

Surrounded by picturesque crimson mountains and azure seas lies the exotic holiday resort of Taba Heights.

It is fast becoming one of the most sought-after destinations on the Red Sea Riviera and a much loved holiday spot. Taba Heights offers a relaxed yet luxurious retreat thanks to its simple yet characteristic Bedouin camps boasting remarkable views of the sea and surrounding mountains as well as clear views of Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Taba Heights is truly the perfect destination for a lazy beachside holiday.

Money

The unit of currency is the Egyptian Pound (EGP), which is divided into 100 piastres. Most credit cards are accepted in major hotels and restaurants. Visitors are advised to take travellers cheques in US Dollars or Pounds to avoid additional exchange rate charges. Banks are usually closed on Friday and Saturday, but private exchange bureaux, called 'Forex', are open daily and banks in major hotels are open 24 hours. Cairo branches of the Egyptian British Bank and Banque Misr now have ATMs available that accept Visa, MasterCard and Cirrus and are quite common in the main tourist areas.
