South Beach, Aqaba

(2.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.
