Located on the shores of the Red Sea at the southernmost point of the country, Aqaba is Jordan's prime beach destination. Once a sleepy fishing village, Aqaba maintains a pleasant laid-back vibe whilst offering luxury hotels and waterfront developments up and down the coast. Some of the best diving and snorkelling opportunities can be found in the Red Sea and there are a number of dive centres in Aqaba. For those on a beach holiday, Aqaba also serves as a base from which to visit the incredible site of Petra and the stunning Wadi Rum, and we've got a selection of day trips that offer just that.
