Gulf of Eilat - Eilat

Gulf of Eilat

Gulf of Eilat

Favorite thing: The Gulf of Aqaba in Israel known as the Gulf of Eilat is a large gulf of the Red Sea.
The Gulf is located to the east of the Sinai Peninsula and west of the Arabian mainland. Jordan, Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia all have coastlines on the Gulf. It reaches a maximum depth of 1850m in its central part.
Geologically, the Gulf of Aqaba is an integral part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa through the Red Sea and northwards towards the rift valley containing the Dead Sea.

Israel-Jordan border - Eilat

Israel-Jordan border

Israel from Jordan to Egyptian borders

Favorite thing: Israeli territory spreads in Eilat from Jordan to Egypt for only 10 km. The city is adjacent to the Egyptian village of Taba to the south, the Jordanian port city of Aqaba to the east, and within sight of Saudi Arabia to the south-east, across the gulf.

So I’ve managed to cross its territory when I strolled along the gulf shore from the very northern point of Eilat (Jordan border) to the very southern point of Eilat (Egyptian border). It took me about three hours with stops and taking photos and videos. I think that was a good idea because it’s possible to cross Israel for such short time only in Eilat.
I'm presenting this idea to Israeli touristy firms and to everybody who would have a rest in this wonderful resort: stroll Israel from Jordan to Egypt on foot for three hours!

You can watch my high resolution photo of Eilat on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 29° 32' 51.79" N 34° 58' 0.02" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Eilat Shoreline 3.
