"Not as good as hoped" Eilat by littlebush

Eilat Travel Guide: 304 reviews and 1,011 photos

I spent 2 nights, 1 full day in Eilat.
It took 3.5 hours by car driving at night from Tel Aviv airport to get to Eilat.
Its a beach resort with many russians and israelis holidaying there.
There are many bars/restaurants.
It also has an airport and flying may be a better option if not staying long.
The beach isnt that nice (im referring to the northern beach as there are others so cant comment on them), its stony and very narrow/small.
Food and drink is also quite expensive.
The good thing about Eilat is the closeness to Jordan/Petra and a one day trip is well worth it.
You will pay alot more doing a tour and would no doubt be better doing it yourself but if pushed for time, then this is a good option if willing to pay more.
Overall, i wont rush back but enjoyed the day there.
