The Red Sea (June 12, 2008)

Snorkeling day in the Red Sea to see coral and sea fish. Back to Dead Sea in the evening. Night in a youth hostel in Ein Gedi.

Coral Beach


Located in the north of the Gulf of Aqaba, near Egyptian and Jordan borders, Eilat is the southernmost city of Israel. The seaside resort is famous for its climate, its sunny weather and its sites for diving.

For this day on the Red Sea coast, we went to Coral Beach, 10 minutes by car from Eilat. This nature reserve with turquoise blue water is rich in coral and other marine biodiversity, easily accessible. Under a beach umbrella (the temperature was 45°C), we relaxed and enjoyed the sea. With a diving mask and snorkel we observed nice fishes and coral, near the shore.

From Eilat to Ein Gedi


At the end of the afternoon, we left Eilat to get to Ein Gedi, near the Dead Sea. We took the road along the Egyptian border and drove across the Negev desert. We reached the Dead Sea shore at the twilight.
