Adventure seekers visiting Jordan will be in their element when they visit Aqaba. The southern part of Aqaba is situated on the coast of the Red Sea and offers a wide range of sports and activities of an aquatic nature including: scuba diving, windsurfing, waterskiing, jet skiing, snorkelling, and sailing.


If you are a qualified scuba diver, be sure to pack your diving certificate and log-book. Even if you weren't planning on a dive trip, the temptation of Aqaba's reefs may soon get the better of you.


To the north of Aqaba, visitors will find the majestic landscapes of Wadi Rum, which can be reached by camel, 4x4, or a car. More intrepid adventurers may like to take a week-long camel trek through this beautiful landscape to the Visitors' Centre at Wadi Rum or jump in a 4x4 and drive cross-country.

Camping is also a favourite activity in Aqaba especially during the cooler seasons between May - July and September - November.


Anyone wishing to drive, trek or camp in the deserts north of Aqaba should be sure to take a guide with them. The desert is vast and uninhabited and very easy to become lost in. Do not attempt this without a professional who knows the area well.


Diving in Aqaba is spectacular and goes on all year round, with different species to be seen in the different seasons. In June / July there are whale sharks, while in February one can often see Mantas.
