Gay Aqaba


Aqaba, Jordan.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Jordan is rich in culture, architecture, history, hospitality and warmth and the year-round Red Sea resort, Aqaba, blends fantasy, sun, sea, history and antiquity for the perfect vacation cocktail. Wedged between Israel to the west and Saudi Arabia to the south, Aqaba was a port in the Roman era that linked Damascus to the Red Sea. Under the Ottoman Empire, however, it fell into centuries of stagnation. For water sports and winter sun, Aqaba is warm and inviting, fringed with palm trees, lapped by the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, cooled by a steady northerly breeze, and ringed by mountains that change in color with the changing of the hours. A dazzling undersea world of coral, fish and other marine life is just meters off the sandy beaches, Snorkeling, water skiing, wind surfing, fishing and a variety of other water sports, including unsurpassed scuba diving are popular.

There are several gay friendly boutique hotels, inns, guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodations for the gay and lesbian traveler to choose from. Rates and amenities vary so there are plenty of choice to meet the needs and budgets of the gay and lesbian traveler. After your stay, post a review of Pink Choice for the benefit of other gay and lesbian travelers.

For the history enthusiast, there are archeological sites reflecting the areas history over at least 5,500 years, reflecting Aqaba’s strategic location at the junction of land and sea routes from Asia, Africa and Europe. Must visit sites are the early Islamic city called Ayla, the Aqaba Fort, (originally a Crusader Castle) dating from the 16th century, and a very fine museum at the historical residence of Sharif Hussein bin Ali, containing a collection of regional artifacts, including fragments of lusterware from Samaria, Chinese ceramics, Umayyad Islamic archaeological finds, and pottery and coins. Other places of interest are the site of the oldest church in the world, the Aquarium and several diving centers across the shore line.

Aqaba offers a wide range of gay friendly hotels providing excellent accommodations and numerous facilities catering to all sorts of water sports. Restaurants cater to the most selective tastes serving Middle Eastern mezzes like the lemony tabouleh, far finer and greener than anything served in the West, and the buttery-smooth hummus followed by freshly grilled seafood, spicy kebabs or grilled chicken. A stroll around the modern town will reveal craftsmen at work filling small bottles with colored sand in intricate geometric designs.

So if you’re looking for sun, fun, water sports, culture, art, history, first class gay friendly hotels and a truly cosmopolitan vacation, then Aqaba, Jordan has much to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
