Eilat and the Negev Sights

Updated 07/14/2013

Fodor's Review

Less than 1 km (½ mi) south of Eilat, this is one of the finest and most densely populated coral reefs in the world. Close to the shoreline, the reef is 1¼ km (¾ mi) long and is zealously guarded by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. The most northern reef in the world, it contains over 100 types of coral and 650 species of fish. In the lagoon, divers and snorkelers take two bridges, or a trail marked by buoys, to get to the reef wall. Stunning multicolored fish

and soft and hard corals are your rich reward. There are hot showers, snorkel rental (NIS 19 for a mask and snorkel, NIS 11 for a float vest), and a snack bar on the premises. Kids should be over five to snorkel—younger ones can play on the beach.
