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.

It is a great place on Jordanian coast. Beach is sandy and sea is hot. It is very quiet . You can relax .

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.

Personally I don't think beaches are good here , rather temperature is great. There are floating beds available for hire and I was thrilled to be here with three countries sharing a small part of the Red Sea.

It's better not to visit if you have some more bucks for private beach. Our guide doesn't recommend to stay there and I agree with him

Much prefer beaches in hotel complexes and while you could relax here, not for us. Needs a bit of cleaning up but worth a look and to stop for a drink. I would imagine the sunsets are excellent from here.
