Salah El-Din Castle, Taba

#3 of 8 in Things to do in Taba
Take a boat out to Salah El-Din Castle, a remote citadel in the middle of the Red Sea. Built by 12th-century sultan Saladin, it served for protection and observation, since most of the land can be viewed from there. Today, you can see three countries from its heights--Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Choose if you want to go there by boat, or observe it from the coast. If you decide to go, join a group tour to see the preserved rooms and facilities, including a kitchen, bathrooms, and a mosque. Put Salah El-Din Castle into our Taba online trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We came here by boat on a trip from our hotel Strand Taba Heights via WoterWorld Taba and it was a breath-taking experience. Clear turquoise water and fortress walls are all on arrival. We had the entrance forbidden to the island, but there is nothing to see there anyway. We spent the whole day on our boat or in the water, where you can see amazing colorful corals and lots of colorful fish and other animals. A truly magical place that is definitely worth a visit.
