Travel between Aqaba and Eilat

by blnram

how much cost a taxi between Aqaba and Eilat. Are there Taxis to use? Have i to change the taxi on the border ?


RE: Travel between Aqaba and Eilat

by TheWanderingCamel

A taxi from central Eilat to the border will cost about 35NIS and a taxi from the border to central Aqaba will cost 5JD (too much, but what to do? there is no public transport from there).

And yes, certainly, no taxis are allowed to go straight through, you will have to walk through the border and look for another taxi at the other side.

Travel Tips for Aqaba

Aqaba Gulf

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Gulf of Aqaba is a large gulf of the Red Sea. In Israel it is named the Gulf of Eilat.
There are three important cities at the northern end of the Gulf: Taba in Egypt, Eilat in Israel, and Aqaba in Jordan. All three cities serve both as strategically important commercial ports and as popular resort destinations for tourists seeking to enjoy the warm climate of the region.

You can watch my 5 min 24 sec HD Video Jordan Aqaba from the Gulf out of my Youtube channel.

You can watch my high resolution photo of Petra on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 29° 31' 30.80" N 34° 58' 7.67" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Aqaba panorama.

Diving : First Bay

by TheWanderingCamel

Entry point is 200 m north of Club Murjan (10 Kms south of Aqaba town), through the lagoon until you are in waist deep water. Snorkel out to the fringing reef and drop through a gap to 3m. Continue finning North through patch coral to an area of white sand with small coral outcrops scattered around inhabited by many different species of Morays. Continue further north to a pinnacle covered in red soft corals, move out to 12-15m depth and begin to drift south towards Cazar Reef. This open area many Lunar Tail Grouper and large slipper lobsters and above at around 5m are often seen Great Barracuda. As the bottom drops away to over 30m head inland and around 10-12m you will often find Frog Fish and Stone Fish. Continue down to the entrance of Cazar Reef for safety stop and exit.

Diving : Gorgone Two

by TheWanderingCamel

Approx 500m south from Gorgone 1. Easy entry onto a shallow grassy area, swim out a distance of 30m to where the reef starts at 2m - 3m depth, often Scorpion Fish, Stone Fish and Crocodile Fish are seen at the base of the reef. At 6 m there are 2 large pinnacles fronted by Broccoli coral and then across a solid reef of Rose coral which drops down to 20m and a large Gorgonia Fan coral. Lots of Lion Fish and eels. Continue on to ....

Sit with Aqaba's locals and smoke Sheeshah

by onfoot

"qahwah" means coffee and coffee shop.
Men head towards "qahwahs" right after their siesta in summer time.
It's not the custom to see women sitting in one of these traditional coffee shops, but as a woman I never had any problems.
It'll be fun if you can join in one of the many backgammon or card games.

Visit the mountains

by Gili_S

I know that some of my friends will tell me those are not really mountains, but for this region they are, if you have the time you can go and visit the desert mountains, they are just in the outskirt of the city.
