Eilat is a leading tourist city, offering something for everyone: resorts, both luxury and budget accommodations, restaurants, entertainment, culture, tourist attractions, official festivals and underground parties. Eilat also enjoys warm temperatures all-year-round and low humidity, as well as lovely beaches and beautiful natural landscapes thanks to its Red Sea locale. Situated on a sole land bridge between Asia and Africa, Eilat is the southernmost point of Israel. A beautiful coral reef runs along the Red Sea’s shores and serene granite mountains form the impressive backdrop of the city. The Red Sea’s water temperature remains between 21-24 degrees Celsius (70-76 Fahrenheit) all-year-round.
The calm surface of the bay is ideal for wind and water sports, such as surfing, parasailing and water skiing. Diving enthusiasts come here from all around the world to snorkel, snuba and scuba at Eilat’s beautiful coral reefs. The clear and stunning blue sea, acclaimed for its extensive coral reefs and unique marine life, has over 1,200 different recorded underwater species, 10% of which are not found anywhere else in the world! And there is certainly nothing wrong with relaxing on one of the many beautiful Eilat beaches and dipping in the cool pleasant water. In addition, Eilat’s surrounding desert provides a rich and diverse ecosystem that is home to hundreds of different animal and bird species and numerous geographical wonders, such as the saline pools that are common stops for flocks of migrating flamingos. The colorful, picturesque mountain terrain surrounding the resort city of Eilat is breathtaking, especially at sunset, which is a great time to take a jeep tour in the wild.
