Nuweiba in Egypt is a coastal area between
the Sinai mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba.
Nuweiba means ‘Bubbling Springs’ in Arabic. It is 70 km south of Taba and 180 km north of Sharm El Sheikh and 120km from St. Katherine’s Monastery and Mount Sinai.
Nuweiba is divided into 3 parts. In the south the port, the town in the centre and to the north the bedouin area Tarabin.
The Yoga studio is on Fayrouz Beach in an area called The Dunes, between the port and the town. Along this long, quiet strip of golden sands and turquoise sea there are coral reefs for diving and snorkeling, several beach camps and some medium to small hotels. From the beach in Nuweiba, you can watch the sun rise over the Hijaz mountains of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf of Aqaba. In the evening as the sun sets to the west, these mountains turn a beautiful pink colour. Behind the studio and the town are the mountains and desert of South Sinai. A wonderful area to explore by either Jeep, camel or on foot. As well as safaris, The Yoga Studio arranges sun set mountain meditations.
Ferries run regularly from the port to Aqaba in Jordon. A visit to the historic site Petra is easily done from here.
The town has several inexpensive restaurants and tourist shops. It also has a hospital, mosque, garden cafes and shops catering for the resident population.
Buses are operated by East Delta Coaches. These basic and cheap buses travel to and from Cairo, Sharm El Sheik, Dahab, Taba. The journey to Cairo takes about 9 hours. More comfortable is 'Go Bus' from Dahab to Cairo via Sharm, this can be booked on line. There is a regular airline service from Sharm El Sheik to Cairo and many other parts of Egypt including Luxor.
