Over the years, Eilat has become Israel 's ultimate resort city, with hotels and beaches packed with thousands of local vacationers and tourists from around the world, who come to relax and have fun.
The secret of Eilat's city's charm is its special location at the northern end of the Bay of Eilat . The combination of hot climate, tropical sea and a breathtaking background of wild, bare granite mountains, has transformed Eilat into a tourist gem all the year round, a fun-filled city with a large selection of restaurants, nightclubs and pubs, a tax-free shoppers' delight and a base for fascinating and easy day trips to the Dead Sea and the Negev Desert .
Thanks to the beautiful beaches, a wide range of water sports and some of the best diving spots in the world, the Bay of Eilat is one of the city's major attractions. The Coral Reserve , in the south of the city, features splendid tropical fish among the reefs. Within the precincts of the reserve is the Underwater Observatory, with a marine museum that displays collections of fascinating sea animals, while not far from the observatory the Dolphin Reef highlights its resident school of dolphins.
