Israel Travel Guide
A country of contrasts, Israel is something different to everyone. It is the cradle of Judaism, the birthplace of Jesus Christ and is the Holyland for many other religions. However, beyond the religion and history Israel is also a popular, sun-kissed holiday destination. Wedged between Egypt and Jordan and hugging the Red Sea is Eilat, one of the world’s finest and most popular resorts. With pristine, sweeping beaches, the warm, inviting sea and enough watersports to tempt even the laziest of sun-worshippers, Eilat has all the ingredients for the perfect holiday. Don’t forget your sunscreen as Eilat's close proximity to the desert means that temperatures can rise to well above thirty degrees celsius!
For those interested in more than just roasting under the rays, Eilat offers many exciting activities including windsurfing, jet-skiing, snorkelling and diving. And, for a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience, head to Dolphins Reef where you can have a chance to observe or even swim with dolphins in their natural habitat. Once the sun goes down numerous bars, restaurants and clubs can be found scattered along the coast. Remember, Israel follows strict kosher laws so no pork or shellfish will be appearing on any menu. When you are ready to lay your head, there are several, well-established full-service hotel complexes to choose from, most having their own swimming pools, sport facilities and eateries. In fact, if so inclined you needn’t leave your own resort for the duration of your stay. However, with it's rich and colourful history Israel has a sea of historical sites, monuments, temples and ruins to be noticed. Take one of the many organised tours from Eilat and discover the intrigue of Israel.
