Coral Beach Nature Reserve, Eilat

(900+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Coral Beach Nature Reserve and other Eilat attractions using our handy Eilat vacation generator.
