Diving and snorkeling are the best things you can do in Aqaba, but if you are afraid to go that deep, you can still enjoy the beaches of Aqaba and have a look at the underwater sights from a glass bottom boat or visit the Aquarium at the Marine Science Station..

Historical Sites

Dont't worry, there are not so many of them, so you can pay your duty to the old stones pretty quickly and then move on to the fun things!

Visit the ruins of ancient Islamic city of Ayla then check out the Aqaba Castle and the Museum next to the iconinc great flagpole. From the flagpole you can walk back to the downtown via the seaside promenade, where you can sit down for a drink and a little people watching.
