Bathing Suits attire in Aqaba

What types of bathing suits are allowed on the beaches and hotels in Aqaba?

I've understood that 2 pieces can be worn at hotels but one pieces/full cover on the beaches. Is this correct?

No, you can wear bikinis on the public beach too, nothing forbids it. If you are a foreign woman, you will get some attention anyway, regardless of your bathing suit.
It depends on how YOU feel more comfortable.

Try to schedule your beach program for working days (Sunday to Wednesday) as there are almost no local people on South Beach that time, only tourists.

From Thursday afternoon till Saturday evening the beaches in Aqaba get crowded by local families from the northern parts of Jordan, and it's usually not so comfortable for foreigners.

If you like, you can also buy a burkini or Modest Islamic Swimwear Swimsuit that covers your full body. It is sold in some sports stores in Aqaba or you can order online.

Monokini (topless) and nude bathing is forbidden in Jordan.
