The Beach Guide

Dolphin Reef Beach

Located on the northern shores of the Red Sea, in Eilat, is the Dolphin Reef. One of the biggest tourist attractions on the coast it lives up to its name consisting of a large semi-enclosed area of beach and reef which is home to a number of bottlenose dolphins.

The first thing to stress is that the dolphins are not captive, they are able to freely swim into the open sea if they wish too. However, you’ll be pleased to hear they seem to like it here. Which is great news for visitors who can go diving and snorkeling with them, or just pet them from the wooden viewing pier which stretches out into the pen.

For those wanting a less energetic day at the beach this is a great place to relax. The small sandy beach here is backed by lush greenery which gives little hint of the arid landscape beyond. Across the clear turquoise waters are views
