The resorts at Tala Bay keep their area clean, and swimming in the Red Sea is quite pleasant, but you can see the rubbish piled up right at their edges. I did a snorkelling tour... read more

The resorts at Tala Bay keep their area clean, and swimming in the Red Sea is quite pleasant, but you can see the rubbish piled up right at their edges. I did a snorkelling tour and there's a nice wreck and some decent coral and lots of fish, with excellent visibility, but when you get close to the public beaches... More

Very nice place for diving. Corals and other marine life intact, but: lots of bottles, cans, plastic bags etc. both on the beach (nobody seems to use the trash bins) and underwater.

It is amazing to dive down to see the underwater tank! It is just a bit off the beach, it is very swimmable!!! You dont even need a tank to dive down there! However, everything is kind of nice except the trash is almost everywhere, so it is quite dirty! I actually can see the potential of this place, if... More

A Taxi from Aqaba city centre was $6.00JD, was a little disappointed as there was not much..if anything I could find open. However a walk along the beach & swim in the Red Sea, I was happy. Thought I had researched all info, guess I was wrong. Am sure it would of been interesting.

We had a smooth and relaxing weekend in Aqaba. The Marine park was ok, but not much fun you could have in there.

The diving or snorkelling here is simply fantastic. There is very little damage or bleaching to the coral. Plentiful fish life. Lots of attractions like the Cedar Pride and Tank are easily accessible to snorkelling or beginner divers. Warning: boats are allowed in and around the park and aren't cautious around swimmers. Exercise caution and keep a look out-when swimming... More
