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 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´.

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

We visited briefly as part of a planned tourist excursion and it was one of the best stops. You have a full view out to Israel across the water, which is clear and warm enough to wade straight into.

It is a long public beach, so maybe part of it sometimes is crowded usually in the evening. Not the cleanest of the word, but you can enjoy the corals, fishes by snorkeling or diving.

But a bit overpriced. Still, worth the visit! The seaside is chock full of umbrellas for shade. Many choices of marine activities available!
