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.
Step out of Aqaba to go to Wadi Rum and see Wadi Rum Protected Area, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, don't miss a visit to Sharif Hussein Bin Ali, walk around Aqaba Marine Park, and take in the exciting artwork at Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery.
