Eilat, also known as Elat or Ellat, is the southernmost city of Israel. When you think of this country, Jerusalem and the biblical stories come to mind. But there are also modern and cosmopolitan cities that will amaze you.
Eilat is a resort that is located in the Negev Desert on the coast of the Gulf of Aqaba and is washed by the Red Sea. This area is bordered by the city of Taba in Egypt and Aqaba in Jordan.
The territory was founded in the tenth century before the common era, during the time of King Solomon. The city was then called Ezion-Geber and was an important point to negotiate with the countries of Ophir and Sheba.
Eilat is a luxury resort and one of the major tourist attractions in Israel. This city is home to 55,000 people and has everything tourists look for on their vacation. Beautiful beaches, coral formations, fun, and shopping. The place also offers a host of activities for lovers of water sports: diving, swimming, windsurfing, surfing, water skiing, kite surfing, boat rides, and more. Do not miss either the Coral World Marine Park, which is an underwater observatory in the Red Sea. You will see the wonderful marine life of the place through the Aquarium Museum, Shark Tank, and reef tank.
Eilat has warm and dry climate, making it an appealing destination for all seasons. If you arrive during the spring and summer, do observe different birds because Eilat is located on the route of migratory birds flying from Europe to Africa and vice versa.
