Pharaoh's Island

Visit Pharaoh's Island

A great way to fill your time in Aqaba. Pharaoh's Island is located 17 km southwest of Aqaba, only 250 m off the Egyptian coast.

Rising impressively from the craggy island, the castle's towers and passageways have been recently restored, helpfully allowing you to imagine the history of this Crusader fortified island.

During your day tour you will have ample opportunity to enjoy swimming and snorkeling near the island and you will be served a delightful barbecue style lunch.
