Meet Eilat Coral Beach Nature Reserve
History, heritage and nature
The most beautiful marine reserve in the world – colorful gardens beneath the sea
The reefs of the Gulf of Eilat are the only coral reefs in our country, and among them a wonderful and colorful world of corals, fish and a huge variety of unique creatures can be seen. The Coral Beach Nature Reserve in Eilat allows visitors easy access to the reef, as well as essential beach services, including a shop, showers, toilets, sunshades, deck chairs and sun loungers
Main points of interest
- Wading pools – shallow pools near the shore, in which little children can paddle.
- Bridges over the reef – bridges built over the reef, from which the coral reef and the colorful fish swimming around it can be seen. The bridges also offer safe access for diverse and snorkelers to the eastern side of the reef that faces out to sea, without damaging the reef and its inhabitants.
- Lookouts over the reef and the wildlife that populates it – visitors to the nature reserve can enjoy the beauty of the colorful creatures living in the reef even without being professional divers. With a diving mask and snorkel (which can be hired at the beach) it is possible to peek into the rich and amazing world and the protrusions of coral around the fringing reef.
Scuba divers can dive along the façade and slope of the reef to see the wonders of the reef at the greater depths.
