Activities in the Eilat area
Water-related activities abound in Eilat, including diving in the Red Sea to see the coral reefs and the brightly-colored fish and other sea creatures. Non-divers can see the reefs by snorkeling or by traveling in glass-bottomed boats. By January, the extreme heat of summer will have passed, and those who don’t want to venture into, or onto, the water can relax on the beach and enjoy the good weather (average temperature 22°C / 72°F). Popular land-based activities include rappelling up the mountain cliffs, hiking in the desert, and bird-watching.
