Eilat Travel Guide
Lying at Israel's southernmost tip, the bustling port of Eilat blends sea with desert and is blessed with all the main ingredients for a perfect holiday. Inviting ocean, lively beaches, seafront bars and eating-places, every kind of water sport you can imagine, fabulous underwater world and coral reefs, diving clubs, desert tours on camels and you can even swim with dolphins
Eilat's main attraction is the spectacular Red Sea, which is in fact an inlet from the Agaba (or Gulf of Eilat). Diving and snorkelling here is out of this world, you can see everything from dazzlingly colourful coral and extraordinary fish, including lionfish, moray eel, sharks and manta rays. With the splendid backdrop of the magnificent and colourful multi-layered Red Mountains and mesmerizing sites such as the Red Canyon, King Solomon's Pillars and Timna Valley Park, Eilat's magic is far from run of the mill stuff.
For party animals, nightlife in Eilat is extremely vibrant and continues the fun that you'll find on the beaches and in the town during day light hours. Actually, many sunbathers head straight to the discos from the beach! For those of you seeking a quieter night, or perhaps wanting to share a more intimate evening, Eilat has some very cosy restaurants serving a wide range of food and excellent fish dishes. Sunsets are simply astonishing. As the sun goes down beyond the hills of the city, the beach is a perfect place to sit back and fix your eyes on the mountains of Agaba across the sea, as they become brilliantly red.
