Fodor's Expert Review Coral Beach Nature Reserve

Eilat Fodor's Choice

Less than 1 km (½ mile) south of Eilat is one of the finest, most densely populated coral reefs on the planet; it's also the world's northernmost reef. Close to the shoreline and zealously guarded by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority, it stretches 1¼ km (¾ mile) and contains more than 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 reach 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.
