Between Nuweiba and Taba there is a long stretch of coast consisting of several locations each known by its own names, and it is almost a continuous line of cheap beach camps. A few mid-range and higher-end resorts also can be found here, but the majority of the places only offer simple huts. Electricity is by generator in most places and for a limited time only, but they usually have nice and clean facilities and decent food. None of these places can be booked online, but they do take reservations via email, Facebook and phone.
