“Different”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

I wasnt overly impressed with this beach right inear the city centre...It is very narrow and lots of rubbish strewn around and could be very intimidating for tourists .. Well worth getting a taxi to the south coast beaches

“Nice beach but not on Fridays”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Good nice beach but AVOID on Fridays when thousands local families come for a picnic - tons of rubbish, kids chasing you or even throwing pebbles at foreign woman (actually happened to my wife)

“lovely views across the Red Sea.”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

The water was crystal clear. The beach was very clean. The glass boats(with a glassed floor) were nice and colourful, and for about 15JD(price negotiable), you could enjoy the sea ride and view some shipwrecks on the sea bottom. The mountains surrounding Aqaba are a sight! Camel rides along the waterline are an option, and the sunset was just spectacular!

“Dirty and crowded”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Unfortunately the city beach isn't clean and pleasure for tourists. There are lots of local peaople and you even can't undress coz it attracts lots of men attention. It's better to have a rest on the South Beach
