If you want to experience a tropical beach vacation, just drive a few hours south through Israel’s desert and you will reach paradise. Visiting Eilat reminds you that Israel isn’t just a dry desert, but it is also a land of beauty and fun! While much smaller than Thailand or Hawaii, Eilat’s beaches aren’t lacking in relaxation. You can splash around in the clear sparkling water, scuba dive, snorkel, or even wind surf.
The true magic of Eilat can’t be seen from land. The coral reefs in the Red Sea are vast and diverse. Snorkeling or diving underwater is exhilarating and the bright neon colored fish and coral are simply stunning. While underwater you may be lucky enough to spot a turtle, a sting ray, or even a whale shark.
On a trip to Eilat I took a boat ride out onto the ocean. With a nice cool breeze in the air, we took off. We listened to Israeli music, ate fresh watermelon, and even had a few dolphin sightings. The boat ride ended as we experienced the sun setting over the turquoise water. Visiting Eilat is a great way to relax, take a break from busy everyday life and experience a beautiful vacation.
