I stayed on the outskirts of Eliat with a group to dive the Red Sea. The reef there is about a third of what it once was, but there are some good dive sites. We stayed at the Isrotel Yam Suf and went diving with Manta diving center. What I like about Eliat is that it's a good destination for non-divers too. At Dolphin Reef, you can pay to snorkel or dive with wild dolphins that reside there. There's a trainer paired with each diver to protect the dolphins (you can't pet or touch them). There's also an underwater observatory that can let non-divers glimpse what diving is like. For divers, Israel may be one of the safest, strictest places to dive. This was the first time I had had my dive log checked along with my PADI certification cards. If you haven't been diving in six months, a refresher course is required.

Long story Short. Eilat is the best place to dive all year long. For those of you who have never been in the Red Sea , You must get there. Moreover , Egypt and Giza, and Perta are just across the boredr. Book a hostel or a hotel at www.eilathostels.com and get the monkey off your back !. Eilat is the true say of : "Sea , sun and sand "

sorry israeli friends, while Eilat is a hometown favorite, if you are visiting Israel, the ONLY reason to go there is to get to Petra. If you want the beach, go to Herzelia. Eilat is overrun with development and has no charm- sadly, it wasn't even like this 10 years ago.

this is a fun tourist beach town, especially in the early spring / late fall when it's warm and sunny without being too hot. great diving / snorkelling at the reef. stay away from here in the summer time, it is waaaaaay too hot! (40+ centigrades is pretty standard)
