As Jordan’s only coastal city, Aqaba enjoys a key position as the countries beach resort destination and its port city.
Located at the southernmost tip of the country, Aqaba is one of the key Red Sea destinations, famous for its crystal clear waters and abundant marine life. These qualities have made the destination extremely popular with scuba divers and today there are many diving centres that offer high-quality scuba diving excursions around the area. Divers have been known to see over a thousand different types of fish, turtles, dolphins and hundreds of different species of soft and hard coral. This vibrantly colourful underwater world can also be seen with a mask and snorkel for visitors who don’t scuba dive.
The area is also famous for its portfolio of high-end luxury hotels from international hotel chains, with a wealth of five-star leisure facilities from infinity edge swimming pools and water sports centres to opulent spas and top class restaurants.
These hotels also offer fantastic activities such as a tour of the Red Sea in a glass bottom boat.
Aqaba makes a great place to stop, relax, take in the sea air and indulge in water sports or wellness during your trip to Jordan.
