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.

  • When I read the reviews I was expecting a horrible beach. Finally beach a little dirty a lot of butts. Beautiful seabed not very far. Great beach can isolate yourself. Beach frequented by Jordanians especially Thursday and Friday but no problem to bathe in bikini. Facing the Bedouin hotel.

  • Just a little off the beach 3 magnificent wrecks and the Japanese garden (coral reserve, fish, sponge anemones,...) From north to south: a destroyer boat 150m long, then Japanese garden, then a tank then a very nice plane. In total about 1km swim // beach. It's really amazing. If you opt for walking masks and Tubas, on the beach ask Wahid, He will swim with you and accompany you to show you these 4 treasures not easy to find when you discover. . it charges less than the services of the dive centres. You will be delighted with the beautiful ride
