Aqaba

With its fascinating history, some outstanding sites, excellent hotels, a wealth of activities, excellent shopping, and friendly, hospitable people, Aqaba , Jordan 's southernmost city, is a fun resort destination.

It's great to relax under the sun on Aqaba's sandy beaches, but if it's world-class snorkeling and diving you crave, the Red Sea is Aqaba's greatest asset. The temperate climate and gentle water currents have created a perfect environment for the growth of corals, and a teeming plethora of marine life. View this beauty under the water, through a glass-bottomed boat or by submarine. From Aqaba, the Red Rock City of Petra is an easy day trip away.
