Visit Eilat: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Eilat
Coral Beach Nature Reserve
This desert landscape looks lifeless from the shore, but when you dive into the clear waters you’ll discover a whole world of tropical fish and colourful coral. Snorkelers can follow the wooden bridge to the beginning of the reef, where underwater trails are marked by buoys. Along the shore, there are shallow, protected wading pools perfect for the little ones.
Timna Park
Timna Park can be found in the Negev Desert, just 17 miles from Eilat. A rugged landscape rich in copper ore, you’ll discover unusual geological features and even spot mines and smelting furnaces dating back to Ancient Egypt. Take a trail around the towering Solomon’s Pillars or head along to the park’s very own lake – yes, lake! – where bobbing pedal boats await.
Red Canyon
Red Canyon lives up to its name, with 30-metre walls of crimson sandstone, sometimes deepening to rich purple. At 300 metres long, the canyon’s trails can be tackled in under two hours. Head along the green route to journey through the heart of the chasm, or take the black to traverse the ridge above. Just wear suitable shoes and prepare for short climbs!

+ Very nice sea resort with a lot of water attractions. + Great hotels. A lot of good restaurants. + There are in-city attractions as well. + People are friendly. - Sand beaches are missing - Low parking space - City center is congested and a little bit ugly

Eilat is fun not only for its beach and sea, but also for the Eilat mountains, where you can find a lot of hiking routs. In the photo - the view from mount Shlomo to the Eilat bay.

I enjoy Eilat very much. My favorite city in Israel. You can find everything, and for every wallet. Clean, and if you like to party then you can definitely find a good restaurant or pub for you. And the Red Sea just wait for you if you like swimming.

Bored, expensive city full of hotels, but in the beautiful area. Don't waste time in the centre, go to the south beach and in the desert.
