“Refreshing Swim and Snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Getting there relatively early in the morning, when the beach and the reserve is almost empty, provides you with a superb and unique experience. Once, you're out there with your snorkeling equipment, it's all about the clear, turquise water, the fantastic fish and the beautiful reef. A great feeling of being surrounded by nature, as if in a different world, although you're so close to the beach.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We rented snorkeling equipment and took advantage of the beautiful water and coral reef. This beach is a national park and so we had free admission with our parks pass which was another great advantage for us. It wasn't very crowded and we had no problems finding a free cabana and lounge chairs. Great and uncrowded beach to visit!

“Nice beach, great snorkeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Despite abrupt customer service, the snorkeling was delightful. We were surprised when the beach was closed at 5, but still had a great time.

“A good snorkel and decent facilities/showers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This was a nice snorkel with a good path outside of the kids areas for viewing the coral. Lots of colorful fish and corals. The snorkel and mask rental was about as much as a cheap set costs to buy at the open market and no fins included, but we figure it supports the reserve and didn't want to pack anything home. Highlight was several good size octupus' chasing each other around!

“Most beautiful, quietest and most civilized beach in Eilat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Most beautiful, quietest and most civilized beach in Eilat. Bring your own floaters for kids to help combat the waves as you snorkel. Snorkels for rent at the office.
