Aqaba (Al-Aqabah) is a coastal town in the far south of Jordan, and the country's only seaport. The town borders Eilat, Israel and there is a border post where it is possible to cross between the two countries (see Wadi Araba Crossing). The town is best known today as a diving and beach resort. The port serves ferries crossing to Egypt's Sinai region including Sharm El Sheikh. It is a short drive from Wadi Rum and Petra in the north.
