The beach looks really dirty, and the only facility they have there are showers - which you have to pay to use. There's absolutely no shade area to go to on a sunny day.

Lovely red sea views, calm and uncluttered, no pushy sellers and peace if you want it! Would definitely return.

This area is controlled by the Aqaba Marine Park. There are a couple of free beaches. The first one is near the Cedar Pride shipwreck and the other near the M42 anti-aircraft tank dive site. Both of the beaches are public access. Now there is a private company that operates the concessions and toilet facilities for which there is a... More

The diving starts right from shore, just swim out a short... More

Very relaxing and peaceful. You don't realise how close you are to the other countries that also back onto these waters.

When approaching South Beach, it appears to be a beautiful beach. Upon closer inspection, you see the same garbage and pollution that plagues Jordan. Trash is in the sand as well as in the water.

Head for the ocean beach club and you can hire snorkels for 5jd and snorkel next to the beach to cool down before heading to the beach bar to dry off and warm up ready for more!
