The Ultimate Winter vacation

The secret of this little city’s charm is its special location in the northern end of the Bay of Eilat. The combination of a hot climate, a tropical sea and a breathtaking backdrop of wild, bare granite mountains has made Eilat the ultimate resort city with Europeans for both summer and winter breaks.

The bay is one of the major attractions, thanks to the beautiful beaches, the developed water sports and some of the best diving spots in the world. In the south of the city is the Coral Reserve, with splendid tropical fish among the reefs. Within the precincts of the reserve is the Underwater Observatory, with a marine museum that displays collections of fascinating sea animals. Not far from the observatory is the Dolphin Reef with its resident school of dolphins.

 Feed your Body, Feed your Soul

Eilat's lively nightlife is alot of fun, with cafes, clubs and bars staying open until late.  The city’s many and varied restaurants will suit all tastes and budgets and if a walk after your meal is a favourie passtime, then there are many colourful shops to browse through and a lovely promenade taking you along the northern shoreline which is home to vibrant bazaars during the summer.

There are additional attractions for youngsters and families, such as an amusement park, a new "Kings City" (a high-tech theme park for all the family based on the Bible and Bible stories). Eilat also has an IMAX movie theatre offering a 3-D experience, and many more leisure time activities.

Also in the Region

The Arava region north of the city and the Eilat Mountains is an arid desert. In between the exposed mountains there are many nature and beauty spots as well as archaeological and historical sites, which makes Eilat a good starting point for special trips in the area, such as camel treks, jeep tours and more.
