Park Objectives:

The protected area of the Aqaba Marine Park was created to “conserve and manage the natural near-shore marine environment of the Aqaba south coast region with its rich biodiversity, while allowing for certain touristic uses at sustainable levels, for the benefit and enjoyment of the present and future generations of Jordanians and the global community.”


The Aqaba Marine Park is located south of the city of Aqaba. The park is about 7 km in length, stretching from the Passenger Terminal in the North to the Police Officers’ Club in the South. The park’s terrestrial boundary lies 50 m East of the Mean High Water Mark and the marine boundary lies 350m West of the Mean High Water Mark.
