Full of trash. No decent fasilities. You draw attention too much. If you have beach at your hotel you don't have reason to come here.

Typical tourist trap. Lots of sellers of junk. Here you can hire a glass boat to go around in Aqaba bay. Next door to Eilat in Israel. You can fly with parachute after a speed boat and much much more!

Take a walk through the city gardens and along the beach, maybe sit down for a cup of tea or a shisha. There is a lot going on but only children and young men go swimming

Nice family beach they do try to keep it clean. The water is clean. More for families so even men should cover up when going into the water as a lot of women are about.

Mostly local boys were hanging out at the free beach before the real season. Any people outside Middle-East feels strange to undress to sunbath or to swim. Nice to take a short walk.

Been to the beach on Friday. Hence crowded. Crystal clear waters. Being a modern city , activities on the beach and water seem to be the pass time along with malls etc.
