Eilat or Aqaba for a couple days on the beach?

Jump to last reply

We have had to shift gears very quickly. After being booked into Egypt in early March, we have canceled and are now off to Jordan and Israel. We will will have a couple of days to spend on the beach at the end of the Jordan component. We are trying to decide between Aqaba on the Jordanian side or Eilat on the Israeli side. We want to swim and snorkel in the Red Sea. We are not really interested in any excursions-we will have been traveling for over a week by then and these two days will be "down time" before the next leg of our trip. Which location offers the best beach and access to colorful sea-life?

Thanks for your suggestions-
