There are six cycling routes in the park – two that are good for families and four for experienced cyclists. More relaxing activities include pedal boating, filling bottles with colored sand enjoying the tasty dishes at the King Solomon’s Khan restaurant
The Dolphin reef
on the shores of the Red Sea, is an ecological site unique in Israel and throughout the world where visitors can enjoy a natural atmosphere, magical views, secluded beach, together with the unusual opportunity of meeting and observing dolphins in their natural habitat.
A group of “bottlenose” dolphins, including babies born at the site, maintain their daily routine of hunting, playing, courting and socializing. They are free to choose between a human company or to continue their daily routine in the group. The fact that the dolphins choose to be with us reinforces, in our opinion, the true bond created between them and us.
Visitors can enjoy getting close to the dolphins from our floating piers and observation points or during one of our guided swims or dives, suitable to anyone who is not afraid of getting wet.
Contact with people is based on the free will and choice of the dolphins. Their choice to approach guided groups of snorkelers or divers is not based on any reinforcement by feeding during these encounters. It is worth mentioning that the dolphins continually develop an even stronger connection with humans based only on curiosity, play, and spontaneous interaction.
Coral Beach Reserve
The reefs of the Gulf of Eilat are the only coral reefs in our country, and among them, a wonderful and colorful world of corals, fish and a huge variety of unique creatures can be seen. The Coral Beach Nature Reserve in Eilat allows visitors easy access to the reef, as well as essential beach services, including a shop, showers, toilets, sunshades, deck chairs, and sun loungers.
Bird Watching Center
Eilat is a major junction on the bird’s migration flyway and one of the most important stopover sites for migratory birds in the world. The only overland bridge between Europe, Asia, and Africa is also a bottle-neck that serves hundreds of millions of migratory birds. Moreover, these birds in Eilat, are preparing themselves for the most challenging task of crossing the foodless and hostile Saharan desert. Eilat area that used to be a large and fertile saltmarsh that consisted the last “fueling station” before the desert for these birds, suffered human development that left nothing of this important habitat. The main work of the International Birding and Research Center in Eilat (IBRCE) is to maintain and improve the habitats of the Bird Sanctuary, renew the food source of the migratory birds in Eilat and to conduct research that will help us safeguard the flyway
Eilat Botanical Gardens
On the northern border of the town of Eilat is hidden a spectacularly beautiful garden – the botanical garden of Eilat. The garden was created on a former military outpost and is built on stone terraces in ancient Biblical style. Inside the garden, there are rare plants from all over the world, a reconstructed stream, waterfalls, enchanting walking tracks, signposting, seating areas, bird sanctuaries and its crowning glory, a rainforest. The rainforest is the first of its kind in the world! A cool and refreshing experience for all the family.
