Israel may not be the first country to come to mind for diving, but Eliat on the southern coast of Israel is one of the prime diving destinations around the Red Sea. You will find hundreds of coral reefs off the coast of Aqua and Migdal beaches. Diving is the obvious highlight, but there are other ways to observe the spectacular marine life, such as the Underwater Observatory Marine Park. This lovely aquarium has several tanks full of sharks, turtles, stingrays, and hundreds of colorful fishes.
Dolphin Reef, as the name suggests, is one of the most abundant spots in dolphins. You will get the chance to encounter these lovely creatures and even swim with them.
If these don’t fulfill your fancy for outdoors, Red Canyon is less than an hour from Eliat’s center. The red sandstones with their stripes and curves look no different from the Antelope Canyon in the US, so you are in for yet another unique landscape from Israel.
