Nuweiba is a coastal town in the eastern part of Sinai Peninsula, Egypt. Located on the coast of the Gulf of Aqaba.HistoryHistorically, the area was inhabited by two different Bedouin tribes: the Tarabin to the north, and the Muzeina, some 8km to the south. After the Six Day War when Israel occupied the area, Nuweiba Town was established just 1.5km south of Tarabeen, under the Israeli name, Neviot (נביעות). After the departure of the Israelis, the town expanded and Nuweiba Port, some 7km to the south, was established and developed, with several car ferries now running every day to Aqaba in Jordan by the Arab Bridge Maritime company, and with a small town growing up around itself.Nuweiba castle (or Newibah castle), built on top of the remains of a still older castle in 1893, has been proposed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.GeographyNuweiba lies on a large flood plain measuring about 40km2,sandwiched between the Sinai mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba, and is located some 150km north of Sharm el Sheikh, 465km southeast from Cairo and 70km south of the Israel–Egypt border separating Taba and Eilat. Nuweiba Port was built in 1985 on the Gulf of Aqaba, and serves as a ferry port as well, which allows for easy travel between Jordan and Egypt.To arrange what you want to do in Nuweiba, use our Egypt trip tool.
