Enjoy the water attractions that make Eilat the ultimate beachside getaway

Surrounded by water, Eilat, Israel’s most southern city, is a wet and wild adventure hub unlike anywhere else in the country. Eilat boasts top beaches, water sports, activities and attractions, open to the public year-round due to the warm local climate.

Dip your toes in the clear, blue waters of Eilat’s beaches, spanning over twelve kilometers of sand, boardwalk, hotel and commercial attractions.

Relax at one of the more secluded and quiet southern beach locations and swim around the coral reefs, or enjoy a vibrant tourist scene at one of the northern beaches, where nearby hotels, restaurants and shops keep the public satisfied and entertained. Or, enjoy the region from aboard a yacht sailing through the waters, allowing you to soak up the sun, unwind and socialize.

Delve into the uniquely beautiful habitat of the Eilat Coral Beach Nature Reserve. Put on snorkeling gear and observe or interact with the local sea creatures as they swim about.
