Life's a Beach !
At the Dolphins Reef

Eilat is mostly known for being a resort town, for its amazing reefs and the variety of underwater life. Its a treasure & paradise place for divers. Eilat Is also a place for fun and Sun, lots of beaches, Hotels, nightlife, restaurants, bars and more.

The weather in Eilat is very hot most year and in summer time it rise even higher than 40c and can be too hot and dangerous for people whom are not used to such weather and that has sensitive skin ! however, the only comfort is that its dry heat and at least you wont suffer of humid !

Eilat is the southern point of Israel and it ends (on the south) with the border of Egypt (Taba) and at at its eastern side with the Jordanian Border (Aqaba). Those of you who wants to leave from Eilat to Egypt or Jordan can do via this borders.

I have been in Eilat So many times that its impossible to count (used to fly there also for work many times), It can be a real fun place if you know to take it easy to enjoy it and if you know the secret places which are not touristy and crowded... Oh and needless to say that the best is to be with the right company.... other wise you miss the whole point of this place... !

    Never made it to Timna - how dumb is that? But then usually passed through Eilat to Sinai. Only spent about 4 nights in total in Eilat..
