Can Eilat really be seen in a single day?

Visiting Eilat can be an exciting adventure. It's a small southern Israeli port, located on the Red Sea, and offers a wide variety of attractions.

Dolphin Reef

Located in Eilat, the Dolphin Reef is an ecological marvel. It is a unique ecological site in Israel, and even in the world. It aims to preserve the natural environment and foster mutual respect between humans and animals. It is a great place to learn about dolphins and other marine creatures.

The Dolphin Reef is the largest aquarium in the Gulf of Eilat, and is accessible by driving or taking a bus from the city center. Its entrance fee is not expensive. The cost includes all the equipment needed to participate in activities. There is also a cafe, souvenir shop, and restrooms on-site. The dolphins are a highlight of the experience, but it is not the only attraction.

The dolphins at the Reef are protected by the National Parks and Nature Reserve Authority, and the Navy. They can be observed under the water during special guided swims.


During July, mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus were discovered in the Eilat area. The Health Ministry called for extra precautions to avoid infection and for the public to use insect repellents.

In addition, the Environmental Protection Ministry demanded the Eilat Municipality to monitor the situation and carry out pest control measures. The Eilat Regional Council was asked to do so as well.

The Syrian-African rift zone is known to be an endemic region for WNF. The presence of the virus in the mosquitoes was confirmed with RT-PCR. The virus was detected in the salivary glands and Malpighian tubules of the mosquitoes that were infected by the IT route. The anterior midgut and hingut of the mosquitoes were refractory to infection, while the posterior midgut was consistently infected.

The virus was also detected in the ovaries of F1 progeny of infected females. It is not known whether the virus can be transmitted to the F2s.



Located on the North Promenade, Bazaar Eilat features 60 authorized stalls. While its most obvious draw is food and beverages, you will also find jewelry, clothing and other baubles.

Among the market's more interesting offerings, you will find the new and improved Terminal Market, a 2000 m2 complex on the site of the former airport. The site is being transformed into a food court, recreational areas and interesting commercial collaborations. It will also have the largest number of shops in Israel, and will feature the biggest aquarium in the country.

There are a variety of other noteworthy sites to visit, including the Carmel Market, an 80 year old relic with a few modern day twists, and the new Kings City theme park. During the summer months, the promenade is abuzz with activity.
