  • It's a town beach. Obviously the Administration strives to appeal: a small elongated Park shields road, there are a few installations of Sun protection. Small playgrounds... Actually not even very dirty, keep some pebbles. Police stations and few tourists requires shops but rather for locals. They inhabit mainly the beach and that makes it interesting: fully veiled women, with complete outfit in the water, fathers who splash around with the kids, gossip circuit senior semester... a hilarious fusion time half an hour walk to watch .

  • You searched for bathing dress. A shame because it means that if you want to swim in the Western style you've go 10-12 km south of Aqaba.

  • The place is less than basic and lacks all the touristic basics. Never try on Friday and overall not recommended  more »
