Beach Nature / Park
Snorkel on South Beach, a public beach and popular picnic spot for locals. A stretch of sandy shore on Aqaba’s Red Sea coast, the beach doesn’t offer many facilities, so bring your own food and drinks. Enjoy a relaxing walk on the sand, or participate in one of the numerous watersports offered, such as boating, paragliding, or jet-skiing. Like most parts of Aqaba’s coastline, it is home to a vibrant and diverse coral reef, making it a great spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. Take a look at our Aqaba holiday planner to schedule your visit to South Beach and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Beaches in the South of Aqaba, with a large area where you can go snorkeling, scuba diving and other water sports, and where you can find several holiday resorts. Great disenchantment is very poor conservation and cleaning that offer visitors, it seems that we care about, giving them equal or bottles, cups, plates, bags, and other waste are decorative elements. And not only on the beach, what has most hurt me was to see the same State of dung into the sea. Imagine a coral background with abundant life and variety of fish where you find yourself "sponsorships" of famous trademarks in format bottle of soft drink/beer and other crap. Taking into account that this area may be called to be the great alternative to divers in the Red Sea tourism, the authorities should be older and better means for the conservation and respect for the environment. A PITY.

  • A free charge access one governmental, if compared to the Jordanian government services it's good had many umbrellas and places to set with nice sea view.  more »
  • The local families just throw their rubbish on the ground even though there are bins every couple of meters. Because it is a local/public beach be prepared to be stared at if you are a western woman!  more »
