Aqaba, on the Gulf of Aqaba at the very top of the Red Sea, is a beach resort and the only sea port in our mystery country. This is the meeting point of two continents – Africa and Asia. At night the lights of Israel’s Red Sea resort, Eilat, twinkle 4 miles to the west and Egypt’s Taba resort is less than 7 miles away. For international tourists, Aqaba tends to be overshadowed by Petra and Wadi Rum, both within a couple of hours drive away, but divers and snorkelers enjoy the clear waters and thriving coral reefs of the Aqaba Marine Park.
