The beach was quiet and nice, gorgeous sunset, overseas is not very clean. On the other hand, compared to other beaches of Aqaba - this is the Best beach

This is the place with the most beautiful underwater sites, though beachside is not good for european style sun-basing and swimming — toilets are dirty, no lounges, umbrellas don't give enough shade and there are lots of locals men and women - the last dressed in traditional costumes with covered faces. Few places to buy refreshments and food (if any).... More

Water is always warm. Great views and rarely crowded. Very quiet and safe too. Good for BBQ, picnics, and families.

Several kilometers out of town, but a lot less people on the beaches. Several great dive sites and amazing snorkeling sites located here. Thursday-Sunday is busier as it's the weekend, but still quieter than the public beach in Aqaba. Great sunsets too!

Forget about the Dead Sea! snorkeling in the Red Sea is what you have to do. Take a boat trip and hover over the Coral with the glass botom boat or snorkel to the famous ship wreckage. Or just dive into the water from the beach side and watch the many beautiful fish as soon as you are 2 meters... More

As part of our trip around Jordan, our tour guide brought us the the south beach. It was certainly an eye opener. First of all I am a muslim but in our country, in some places it is still frown upon if you dive into the swimming pool, let alone ocean with all your clothes on! Well here, it is... More

Most of the problem is down to the indigenous population. They seem to gain pleasure from throwin anything and everything down where they have finished with it. The waters edge is littered with plastic bags / bottles and all sorts of other crap.It gets in the water, the fish can't eat it, they die instead. People walking on the coral... More
