Aqaba Marine Park

Recommended
Aqaba Marine Park was established in 2004 to protect the extraordinary underwater life of the south coast. It runs for 7km, from the Marine Science Centre Aquarium to the Royal Diving Club. It has around 20 dive sites, including the wreck of the Lebanese cargo ship Cedar Pride, scuttled in 1985 at the request of the current King Abdallah II. The sites host a wealth of varieties of hard and soft corals and a multitude of fish.
