Jordan’s Red Sea coastline is highly treasured by Jordanians, both for trade reasons and for relaxation. Aqaba is the hub of this trade and tourism and is a rapidly developing city. A vast new development of lagoons, shops and hotels echoing Dubai is under construction, whilst the city boasts several upmarket hotels, popular beaches and lots of restaurants. Aqaba is great for those looking for water sports, and is the only place in Jordan you can dive, snorkel or sail. It is a very popular destination and is rapidly becoming the liveliest place in Jordan.
