It is best known today as a seaside and diving resort and also as a home for Jordan's mega projects. However, industrial and commercial activities remains important, due to the strategic location of the city as the country's only seaport.

It also offers activities which take advantage of its desert location. Its many coffee shops offer mansaf and knafeh, and baqlawa desserts.
