Along with a well-earned reputation for friendly locals, Aqaba boasts luxurious resorts, seafood cafés, a waterfront promenade, and gorgeous desert scenery. Equipped with the local experiences, water sports, snorkeling to explore the coral reefs and a historical flair for those looking to revisit the past Aqaba is a delightful complement to the metropolitan appeal of Amman.
At the crossroads of the continents of Asia, Africa, and Europe, Aqaba is located at the northernmost point of the “Gulf of Aqaba,” the Red Sea. Since the city has been inhabited for more than 4,000 years, it has a lengthy history. Near the Arava Border, a few kilometers north of the city’s core, is where King Hussain International Airport is located.
With new mega-projects like Tala Bay, Ayla Oasis, Saraya Aqaba, and Marsa Zayed adding additional hotels, attractions, and accommodations, as well as dramatically increasing Aqaba’s population, the city of Aqaba is poised to change into an even more prominent resort city in the upcoming years.
