B&B Petra Fig Tree Villa. How to get there

Entrance to B and B Petra Fig Tree Villa with agaves

The villa is located in a quiet part of Wadi Musa. Just on the hill above the tourist street. By car it is about 5 minutes up the hill from the Visitors Center of Petra. When you are on the square of the visitors center, just look over the Mövenpick hotel and you’ll see the villa with the typical green roofs! On the above picture you see the entrance to the Bed and Breakfast. With the parking direct on your right hand side.

Travel directions

In Wadi Musa the streets have no names. The B&B is located in the area called Garara. It is the area above the so called ‘Tourist street’. The road up the mountain to the B&B Petra Fig Tree Villa is pointed out in yellow on the map. If you come by car from Wadi Musa you can follow the blue line to get to the point where you need to climb up the hill to the B&B.

If you come from Little Petra you can first follow the green line and then the yellow one. And if you are on the parking close to the Petra Visitors Centrem you can follow the red line to get to this point where you start driving up the hill.

There is a new road that avoids town. You can use it when you come from Wadi Rum and Aqaba, on the south side of Wadi Musa. It’s the purple line on the map.

Or you can use GPS coordinates 30.329359, 35.472518.

I can send you my location if we are connected on Whatsapp. Just let me know if you want this.

Walking to Petra

From the B&B you walk, down hill, in about ten to 15 minutes to the Visitor’s centre of Petra. On this map you can see how to get there. And, off course you can also take this way back up after your Petra visit. But this is up the mountain so this will take a bit longer.
