  • Unusually beautiful place with a kind of ironic atmosphere transmitted device and scenery Park, ponds, waterfalls, wooden sculptures of cartoon characters, exotic plants, etc. Be sure to visit this beautiful place in the desert, where the temperature reaches 55 degrees 17% moisture and soil in the summer warms up to 85 degrees, only uncouth individuals will not appreciate this place and work of people appreciated!

  • I love nature: flowers, trees - but this garden , maybe in Winter time is nothing special , and I don't recommend  more »
  • If you find yourself near the EILAT STONE tours, can visit the Botanical Garden. Price 28 shekels, and if it's interesting to see a small exhibition of plants in nature, though it is in the desert can spend this money

  • Beautiful place to go for a short walk and see wide variety of plants. It is a free entrance and can be fit for families, couples, elders. Recommended season is winter because during the summer it is too hot to walk outside.
  • To see sodom apple tree is great I reccomend. Well worth the price.
  • We expected to see a garden that looks​ like a Paradise. I suppose it used to being this kind of place. But now it is quite pure garden, probably they miss finance support from government. I would come back with a volunteering​.
  • Lovely visit and well worth visiting. Warm welcome on arrival. Great views. You'll also find out about an army look out post among the botanical gardens and rain forest.
  • Great place to sit and have cofee between one of the most beautiful dessert forests! A uniq experience!

Where to stay in Eilat

Eilat possesses more than its fair share of accommodations, with the resort town popular with domestic and international visitors alike. Vying for attention up close to the beach sit the most luxurious options, with extensive views of the Red Sea from the comfort of large, pristine rooms and onsite restaurants. For budget-friendly options, take a look close to the central bus station. Motels and guesthouses on the hillside here offer simple private and shared rooms, while the residential streets contain a number of homestays.
