Aqaba : Michelin's recommendations
The country’s only seaside resort, and a special economic zone since 2001, Aqaba is gradually acquiring fine residences and luxury hotels; a new marina and hotel complexes are being constructed.

The main beauties of the area, however, lie beneath the waves to the south of the city.
