The city of Aqaba is situated in the most southern part of Jordan and lies on the most northern tip of the Red Sea from where, on a clear day, one can see Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In ancient times, Aqaba was the main port for shipments from the Red Sea to the Far East. The Mameluk Fort, one of the main historical landmarks of Aqaba, was originally a Crusader Castle, and was rebuilt by the Mameluks in the 16th century. Aqaba’s clean sandy beaches make it an ideal location for relaxation and its transparent waters and reef offer a wonderful variety of unique sea life.
