Aqaba

Aqaba ©
Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Get in touch with nature at Wadi Rum Protected Area and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at South Beach and Wadi Araba Desert. There's more to do: head outdoors with Berenice Beach Club.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Aqaba holiday planner.

Ljubljana, Slovenia to Aqaba is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Israel Standard Time (IST) is 1 hour. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Ljubljana in October: high temperatures in Aqaba hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Petra - Wadi Musa.
