Aqaba

(3.7/5 based on 4,800+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, beaches, nature

Bride of the Red Sea

Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land. Spectacular coral reefs in the Gulf of Aqaba dazzle snorkelers and divers, while those preferring to stay closer to shore have numerous wide sandy beaches to choose from for swimming and relaxing. Travelers can round off their Aqaba itinerary with visits to a 16th-century fort, the world's oldest purpose-built Christian church, and a historic Turkish bath. The desert climate, with its warm winters and hot dry summers, is ideal for archaeological walking tours, cooling off in the aquamarine waters, or dining on seafood, dates, and ghee by the waterfront.
