Coral Beach Nature Reserve, Eilat

4.3
#2 of 117 in Wildlife in Israel
Explore the underwater jungle of coral reefs and colorful marine life at Coral Beach Nature Reserve. This haven for snorkelers and scuba divers features more than 270 species of coral and 650 species of tropical fish--some of which are endemic to the Red Sea. Rent snorkeling equipment and cross a wooden bridge to reach the starting point of a 1,200 m (3,937 ft) long coral reef. From there on, you can follow marked underwater trails along the first coral reef, which is only 3-4 m (13 ft) deep. Further from the shore you will find a sand bar and a 35 m (115 ft) deep wall of corals. The nature reserve features the largest underwater observatory in the Middle East.

  • It was really worth it! We were there shortly after 9, and I would recommend that to everyone. Then there's not quite that much going on. In the late morning there was already a lot going on. Snorkelling equipment can be rented, a spin tas as well.

  • We were looking for a place to make Nornis for the first time. Chol HaMoed Sukkot (Eilat is loaded). We decided, with a certain concern (especially in light of the difficulty of finding parking), to go for the sanctuary. At the entrance of the business, I even got a discount from an active reserve service-not to forget the diploma. Even the hiring of the Shunraquel and the mask went smoothly and we received perfectly high quality silicone equipment. The reserve is large and there is no density! The reef is lovely! We've seen so many... Definitely addictive. We'il definitely be back again. Highly recommended!
