Eilat presents a magnificent world-renowned coral reef that runs along the Red Sea’s shores. The cool but year round stable water temperature and its calm surface are ideal for wind and water sports, such as surfing, parasailing and water skiing.
Diving and snorkeling around Eilat’s extensive breathtaking coral reef provides another very special experience, as it features unique marine life of over 1,200 different recorded species, some of which are not found anywhere else in the world! And one can, of course, just lie down and relax on one of the city’s many beautiful beaches and go for a refreshing dip every-once-in–a–while. Eilat’s surrounding mountains and desert form a dramatic natural setting and provide a rich and diverse ecosystem that is home to hundreds of different animal and bird species and numerous geographical wonders. This colorful and picturesque desert terrain offers a spectacular opportunity for going on a jeep tour in the wild, especially at sunset.
