Fjord Bay, Taba

Fjord Bay is located roughly ten miles south of Taba on the Sinai Peninsula, close to the northernmost tip of the Gulf of Aqaba and the border crossing with Eilat, Israel. Largely unknown to those outside of the region, the bay is formed from a narrow inlet of the Red Sea reminiscent of a fjord. Its shallows end with a band of richly-coloured sands.

Facing southeast, Fjord Bay has warm waters throughout the year, and have a consistency of winds that make windsurfers a common occurrence. If your interest lies below the waves, advanced divers tend to head for Fjord Hole, which sinks from 16-24 metres below the surface, and is home to a huge number of reef species. But inexperienced divers don’t have to miss out thanks to the shallow reef universally known as the Fjord Banana because of its curving shape.
