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!

Eilat is the beating heart of southern Israel birding, easy access to lots of great birding sites but not easy to find eating out places and food prices are extortionate.
