Nuweiba is a coastal town in the eastern part of Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, on the coast of the Gulf of Aqaba. It is located at around 29°1'60?N, 34°40'0?ECoordinates: 29°1'60?N, 34°40'0?E.

Nuweiba lies on a large flood plain measuring about 40km² (25 square miles), sandwiched between the Sinai mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba, and is located some 150 km (93 miles) north of Sharm el Sheikh, 465 km (289 miles) southeast from Cairo and 70 km (43 miles) south of the Israel-Egypt border separating Taba and Eilat.

Historically, the area was inhabited by two different Bedouin tribes: the Tarabin to the north, and the Maizena, some 8 km (5 miles) to the south.
Since the Six Day War when Israel captured the area, Nuweiba Town sprung up just 1.5 km (1 mile) south of Tarabeen, under the Israeli name, Neviot. After the departure of the Israelis, the town expanded and Nuweiba Port, some 7 km (4 miles) to the south, was established and developed, with several car ferries now running every day to Aqaba in Jordan, and with a small town growing up around itself.
