Why fly to Aqaba?
“To Aqaba!”The immortal words of Peter O’Toole in the film Lawrence of Arabia are bound to ring in your ears as you explore this historic city.
Aqaba is the only coastline in Jordan and what a coastline it is. With spectacular underwater coral reefs and beautiful sandy beaches it is little wonder so many travellers flock here for rest and relaxation.
Temperatures in winter rarely fall below 20°C and in the summer daytime temperatures hover on the other side of 35°C making it the perfect destination year round. The sun bleached city is also the gateway for tourists travelling to Jordan’s best known attraction – Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Carved out of rose tinged sandstone, the “pink city” attracts thousands of visitors every day who make the pilgrimage to the remote hideaway.
Aqaba is also nearby Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon, a stunning desert located an hour south that resembles the rocky surface of the moon.
