Coral Beach Nature Reserve, Eilat

#2 of 112 in Wildlife in Israel
Reef · Wildlife Area
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.

  • no pee allowed
  • Good facilities with snorkel hire, locker hire, shower, toilets etc. However, you have to view the coral in a guided lane, which is very restrictive. The coral is better in other places along the coast, but there was a decent variety of fish to see.
