We tend to stick to the hotel beaches in this part of the world but I have to say this was a great place to relax and have a dip without any hassle. Worth a visit.

Aqaba Jordan is a coastal city on the banks of the Red Sea. It really has nothing special for foreign tourists. However if you want to see the Dead Sea and Petra (Tomb Raiders) could be a starting point.

The public beach outside Aqaba is only reachable by car ot Taxi, although you wanna walk the 10km next to the industrial harbour. The sunset is absolute beautiful with the sillhouette of Israels Mountains on the opposite´.

Nice public beach away from city center which may seem less crowded. Good for snorkeling and scuba diving. It's on the way to Tala bay where some pubs and restaurants can be found.

The beach is a 15 min drive from Aqaba (5 JD). Although if has lots of trashcans around the beach had plenty of very small pieces of garbage. The shallow parts have a lot of rocks which makes getting in or going out of the water very unpleasant. We were there on a Thursday and very few people (almost everyone... More
