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

Few minutes away from City Central, a bit dirty but better that the beach back in the city. Nothing much to do though. Really nice view of Israel.

I did shore diving through a dive company on south beach. The beach isn't that great but out under the water was fantastic. Good visibility, lots of small colorful fish, octopus, eels, lion fish, good variety of life, coral in good condition, shipwreck was more impressive than I expected. 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!

The sea is warm and clear and the reef generally very healthy and clean. One or two areas however are ruined by rubbish blown in from the beach. The beach front has paved boulevards with seats, toilets, palms, and shelters, all started in a more prosperous time. Unfortunately the tourist dollar seems to have run out and the whole area...
