Among the waters of the Red Sea lies one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world.  Its mazes, bays, deep canyons, and the abundant beautiful fish that swim among the majestic coral have made it an internationally-renowned diving site.  The magic and silence of this underwater world is calming and enchanting

 

The coral reef in Eilat extends for over 1200 meters along the shore, and is one of the northernmost reefs in the world, and the only one of its kind in Israel and as such has been declared a nature reserve.  The reef has become a pilgrimage site for sea naturalists and for professional and amateur divers and snorkelers.  The reef is made up of a primary wall of coral that descends to a depth of 3 to 4 meters.  Behind this is a sand bar with two huge rocks known as Joshua and Moses, and behind these is another steep wall of coral that descends to a depth of 35 meters.  The beautiful coral creates colorful garden-like formations containing many varieties of fish and marvelous sea creatures.  There are over 270 species of coral in this underwater jungle, among which are numerous small habitats that contain over 2,500 species of underwater life – some of them unique to the Red Sea.  These include sea turtles, sea urchins, oysters, sea anemones, crabs, sponges, octopi, cuttlefish, tropical fish, and even several types of cheerful dolphins - making diving at the site a special experience




 


 

Since the coral reef is a complex and delicate ecosystem, any deviation in its balance is liable to cause a negative chain reaction.  The site therefore imposes strict precautions designed to preserve its natural ecological balance, and the number of divers that are permitted to enter the site at one time is limited.
