The golf of Eilat is home for 250 coral types and 1,200 species of fish, some endemic to the region. The dreamy beaches and the crystal-clear water are perfect for scuba diving, and snorkeling. Buy or rent the gear at any shop in Eilat, and plunge into the water. You will quickly find yourself overwhelmed by the breathtaking coral formations and the rich variety of tropical fish. The colorful Red Sea clownfish is the main attraction, as well as regal angelfish, butterflyfish, lionfish, wrasse, and more. Best beaches for snorkeling are the coral reef nature reserve, the former princess hotel, and the lighthouse beach.
Snorkeling at the Red Sea can be combined with a tour of Eilat.
