Located on the coast of the Red Sea in southern Israel, the city of Eilat is a little different to what you might expect from a Holy Land tourist destination. Natural beauty and adventurous pastimes go hand-in-hand in this part of the world. Famed for its beautiful coral reefs, Eilat is a primary destination for both experienced and novice divers. Underwater excursions take in the beautiful and colorful marine life, while boating, parasailing and other watersports prove incredibly popular.
Soft sandy beaches offer the perfect backdrop against which to relax in the evening, with the setting sun offering a magnificent sight in itself. Restaurants, cafés and bars give visitors the chance to wine and dine in the beautiful surroundings, while a number of family-friendly tourist attractions make this a destination suited for all.
Just minutes from the Negev region, Eilat is also a popular choice with those wishing to explore the barren lands, be it by jeep, camel or helicopter.
