Beautiful long beach, best public beach of the Red Sea in Jordan. No crowds. If you are a lady-tourist, no problem to be there in a bikini, unlike the public beach in Aqaba city. There are several reeves, very beautiful for snorkeling or diving, a lot of colourful fish.

If you are expecting a sandy beach, this is not it. But its pretty decent, clean and not so much crowd. There are hardly any waves, but it has reefs even just 20-30 mtrs out and you can go snorkelling or scuba during mid day. Only few options to eat across the road at the resorts.

If you plan to wear swimwear, do NOT go to the first beach closest to the town center. Drive a few minutes more and come to South Beach.

Not much to do... The beach is very stony and not much sand... But the place had enough place to rest and shower facilities available... Not a place to invest your time ideally... If you here for a short time
