Fodor's Review

Less than 1 km (½ mile) 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 mile) long and is zealously guarded by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. The northernmost 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, a snack bar, and snorkel rentals. Kids should be at least five to snorkel.
