I went snorkeling off the beach. Lots of beautiful colorful fishes. Several different types of corals. The day I was there visibility was good although I heard just a day or two before it had been murky.

I love the Coral Beach, even though I just swim, don't dive, but anyway its great. My 2 favorite places are: (1) Almog Beach in the front of Prima Music Hotel ; (2) The beach in front of Princess Hotel.

Observatory, undersea boat ride, shop and restaurant. Worth a visit. Their conservation efforts are laudable.

Incredible visit. Colorful fish in their live habitat. Underwater onbersatory amidst an natural coral reef. The beach itself does not have much to offer as it is quite rocky However there are two piers which take you out into the water at a point where there are thousands of colorful fish. We went during the winter so it was a... More

You do not have to travel to far places for bathing, getting sun-tend and snorkeling. You have it all in that reserve and it close to the center city and the hotels of Eilat.

It is very interesting for snorkeling around the coral reef and see the beautiful marine life. I stayed around 1 hour in the water and enjoyed the beauty of the area.

This is a state Park, when visiting Israel, I would recommend getting a 2 week state park pass. This spot is great because it's very clean, beautiful and has a walk out peer that you can jump in the Red Sea. It's a nice place to dive/snorkel. There are nearby restaurants.

I had never been snorkeling before my experience at Coral Beach and I was expecting it to be much more complicated than it was. I went with a small group of friends and we all had a blast! The snorkeling gear was easy to rent and worth every penny. The water itself was cold (we went in January), but the... More
