Aqaba – greatly prized as Jordan’s window to the sea. It brings a refreshing release from the rose-colored desert to the north. It is also the largest city on the Gulf of Aqaba and Jordan’s only coastal City. No wonder, that Aqaba in one of the major tourist attractions in the country. It is known for its sandy beaches, indigo-colored warm water and coral reefs.

To us Aqaba looked like tranquil, nice coastal town. When we were on the beach, we noticed that there were more local people than tourists. With curiosity we were observing how Jordanians were spending their holidays.

In terms of accommodation we were using parkings of public beach resorts.  Additionally, there was a nice shower available for only 0.50 JD/ person :D

Internet Issue – in Aqaba we were struggling with finding the internet. There was only one internet café, with very nice manager, who was giving water to his customers for free.
