#3 of 81 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.

  • The beach is beautiful. Sea water is very transparent. It is necessary to pay 35 shekels per person to enter. Inside, there are bathroom, dressing room and water fountains. There are also some related items for sale and rental of scuba gear. There are two bridges that lead to the beginning of the location for diving. You can see many fish and coral with mask and snorkel. Be careful when leaving slippers at the bridges. Many people leave the flip-flops on the bridge to walk into the sea and not have to go back barefoot after (the ground is hot), but when I went back to the bridge, the man had disappeared. Recommend this beach.

  • Coral Beach is an amazing place! Yes, there's no caressing sand where you can stretch out and lie-Tan around the stones, but here is the stunning world of the Gulf of Aqaba! All that shows CNN on tv about the underwater world-all this you can see with your own eyes. Snorkel, flippers, swimsuit, and water to drink! -that's all that you need for you at Coral Beach. Visits in the water at this beach Bay fenced special buoys. Out of their walking dangerous-on the bottom can be sea urchins! Every morning and throughout the day until 4 pm, except Saturday, visits in the Aqaba Gulf check trained people who immediately on the beach all day and are! Indeed for the reds of the underwater world here and people come! Corals in different shapes, colors, sizes ... fish ... a little deeper nyrnjosh-full feeling that you can touch! What only varieties here you will not see! Some come straight to the Bank! Parrotfish in particular. Seen this beauty ... Feed the fish is strictly prohibited! When the sun go behind the mountains in the shallow waters of priplavajut moray eels. They are like dogs kljanchat scraps of food from people. One child threw into the water chicken bone-our surprise there was no end: she swallowed it! With or without scuba diving, snorkel, or without it-be sure to visit and swim there! You feel like a hero mudtfilma "Finding Nemo." Beauty! Across many firms that offer diving services. It is a pleasure worth about 230 shekels. Instruction, give costume outfit and go! There is night diving is not cheap! Even the most sophisticated tourists advise-go there!
