Eilat - Israel's holiday resort of Eilat is known for snorkeling and scuba diving. Its low humidity, 1 inch of annual rainfall and pleasant climes of between 60F-85F in winter, spring and autumn, make Eilat the perfect sporting venue and holiday destination.
Eilat, Israel’s southern most holiday resort nestles on the shores of the Red Sea between the Jordanian city port of Aqaba and the Sinai mountains of Egypt.
The resort sits in a savannah desert and the Syrian African Rift Valley from which the Red Sea and the high Mountains of Eilat were formed. The desert stretches north from the city
and jagged burgundy mountain peaks, interspersed with tawny sandstone outcrops, hug the western city limits.
Due to its dry, hot, predictable climate, calm blue sea, coral reef and desert scenery, Eilat is a popular holiday choice for Israelis.
