Dive into the historical heart of the city
Be sure to visit the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline terminal and the bustling Port of Eilat. And for a scenic end to your day, take a leisurely drive along one of the city's main arterial roads, Route 12 or Route 90, adored for their breathtaking views across Eilat's surrounding beauty.
Seafood lovers can indulge their taste buds at one of the waterfront restaurants, offering nothing less than the freshest from the bountiful Red Sea waters. For a true taste of the Mediterranean, dip warm flatbread into locally pressed, golden olive oil, before moving onto a portion of flame-grilled shish kebab paired with a classic Israeli salad of fresh cucumbers and tomatoes.
For a sweet ending to your meal, dip into a bowl of Malabi, a creamy rose-scented pudding topped with a vibrant scarlet raspberry syrup and a sprinkling of shredded coconut. Wash it all down with a glass of Arak, an anise-flavoured spirit, or a local craft beer for a nightcap that's truly Arieli.
A desert oasis that sparkles under the hot summer sun and blossoms in warm winter months, Eilat is a year-round destination. However, the ideal time to visit is between September and October, as the weather is pleasantly warm without reaching summer's scorching heights.
Divers will find Eilat to be a slice of subaquatic heaven with warm waters, excellent visibility, and an abundance of marine life. For those looking to dodge the crowds, February offers the most affordable accommodation prices. However, if the pull of the summer sun is too strong to resist, be prepared for temperatures that often exceed 40 degrees Celsius. Still, it's nothing that a cool sea dip or a well-timed aircon break can't handle.
