A small piece of land off the coast of Taba, the island of the Pharaohs - is one of the most picturesque and historically interesting places in the Gulf of Aqaba. On a rocky island of only a few hundred meters stands the well-preserved medieval fortress of Saladdin, the underwater landscapes abound with corals and colorful fish, and in the evenings the majestic walls become a platform for light-music performance.
To get to the island, which is located only 250 meters far from the coast line, you can take a small boat. The citadel consists of 2 fortifications - the southern and the northern - each of them is visually represented as a separate structure.
