Eilat is Israels southern most port and resort town on the Red Sea, near Jordan, and the Egyptian border. Its beaches are noted for their clear, calm waters, like Dolphin Reef, where the aquatic mammals are often spotted. Known for snorkeling and diving, Coral Beach Nature Reserve (where we go) has buoy-marked underwater trails among fish-filled reefs. Nearby Coral World Underwater Observatory Marine Park has a glass-enclosed observation center submerged offshore.
