The beach has shaded areas and chairs for free and the reefs, Coral and tropical fish are amazing. It's easy to get into the water via two bridges out over the reef and a few steps down into the water. There is a floating line...More

A wonderful swim on the edge of the coral reef. This may be a small reef, and somewhat damaged by the regular oil leaks (e.g., December 2014), but still beautiful. By some accounts, the "chronically polluted reef flat of the ECNR" actually does better than...More

Really beautiful experience with good level of infrastructure. The reefs and the colorful fishes were amazing (although there were not too much fishes in the water).

This beach is close to Eilat and is relatively cheap. There are hot showers for after you swim. The coral and the fish are nice but not spectacular. Watch out for jellyfish. It's a good way to relax and recharge for your next day.

Hii, the Herods Palace is on the Israeli-Jordan border side as the Coral Reef is much closer to the Israeli- Egyptian border. There's a bus ( I think the number 15 bus ) that might take you from around your hotel to the... More
