South Beach, Aqaba

2.8
#5 of 8 in Parks in Al Aqabah Governorate
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.

    We stayed in this area because we wanted an area with beach away from the noise of the Center but anywhere we find information from far away that is. This means the cost of transport which is not economic in taxi go to eat at a good restaurant or visit Aqaba. I recommend staying in a downtown hotel with beach to enjoy the water and at the same time going for a walk in the city.
