Aqaba is Jordan’s busy and vibrant port city on the Red Sea. It’s one of the most popular and important tourist destinations in the country.
This is a lovely place to learn how to dive, as the dive shops teach to a high standard and can qualify you with PADI certificates or other qualifications.
You can find turtles, moray eels, and even sharks just off the beaches, making snorkeling one of the best things to do in Aqaba Jordan.
This is quite literally what the name suggests, a sunken tank that’s become a popular underwater photo opportunity as well as a small, artificial reef.
Located close to the port, Aqaba Aquarium is home to a wide variety of marine species that you will also find in the water and in the coral reefs off of the coastline.
This enormous flagpole, with the unique and equally large Arab Revolt Flag at its top, is the most visible landmark in the city.
