Aqaba is a haven for snorkelling and diving holidays. The Red Sea waters of the Gulf of Aqaba are teeming with fish and a whole host of other spectacular marine life. Beautiful coral reefs are to be explored, many within 50 metres or less of the shore.
Luxury cruises are another memorable way to take in the scenery. Folds of dusty mountains contrast pleasingly with the indigo-coloured seawater of the Gulf. Windsurfing and other water sports can also be enjoyed in Aqaba.
The town has its own international airport, making it a stress-free destination for a relaxing and reinvigorating seaside break, or an easy addition to a tailored itinerary taking in Jordan's many natural and historic attractions.

For many, the spectacular ‘lost city’ of Petra, carved iby the ancient Nabateans, simply is Jordan, but there is plenty more to this gem of a country. From the diverse capital, Amman with its ancient Roman sites and bustling streets, to the haunting desert of Wadi Rum and otherworldly Dead Sea.
