Best hotels in israel

Set at the very southern end of Israel, facing the Red Sea, Eilat is one of Israel’s most popular vacation destinations. Its hotels offer a great variety of places to stay, and its famous beaches are inviting for some sea and sun relaxation. But Eilat is also an excellent base for exploring the Red Sea and the south of Israel. Along Eilat’s shores are some great places to snorkel and scuba dive.

The variety of exotic-colored fish swimming in the coral reefs is a feast for the eyes! And if you do not wish to get wet and still want to appreciate Eilat’s famous aquatic life, go to Eilat’s underground Observatory or sail on a boat with a glass bottom boat. Eilat’s beaches also offer plenty of water sports: skiing, Kayaks, wind surfing, Saps, and more. It is also possible to rent a yacht and set a sail that will include water sports and a barbecue meal. If you have some restless children and teenagers, take them to ‘Top94‘. This training center in Eilat’s industrial zone offers rock climbing, archery, go carts, and more family-friendly fun activities.

Tours from Eilat

petra khazaneA day tour to Petra is the most popular activity when staying in Eilat. Crossing the border into Jordan in the morning, it is a 2 hours drive to Wadi Musa, from which you embark on a tour by foot along Petra’s famous ‘sick’ to the majestic ‘Khazaneh‘ and the city’s main street. We recommend a 2-days tour of Jordan to appreciate Wadi Rum, sleep in a Bedouin encampment, and possibly participate in the Petra Night Tour.

Another popular option is a Jeep tour in the Eilat Mountains and a hike in the ‘Red Canyon‘. Carved in red sandstone, the canyon unfolds a special rigid landscape close to the border of Egypt. 18 miles north of Eilat, Timna Park also offers several hikes through special wilderness landscapes. Solomon Pillars’, the ‘Mushroom,’ the great Arch, and the copper mining shafts are just some of the unique features in this park. Near its visitor center is also a unique replica of the biblical Tabernacle, presented in a locally guided tour. If you are keen on learning Eilat’s unique history, visit the museum and visit its Neolithic shrine site.
