To Select Haifa As Your Holiday Destination
Israel's Best Loved Resort by Rob Atherton
At the most southerly part
of Israel lies the seaside resort Eilat. This tiny stretch of the Israel
coastline is sandwiched between Taba in Egypt to the west and Aqaba in
Jordan to the east. In its early days, Eilat was officially recognised
as a town in 1959 with a population of 6,000. 50 years later, the population
had increased to 55,000 and it was firmly established on the tourist map.
Today, visitors from Israel
and abroad flock to Eilat which has plenty of offer with a range of hotels,
shopping outlets as well as bars, cafes and restaurants. Not surprisingly,
there are a large number of fish restaurants as well as others offering
Italian, American, Brazilian, Japanese, Israeli, Mexican, French, Chinese,
Thai, Korean and Lebanese cuisine.
|Eilat also has a tax-free
status so for Israelis; it is a shopping haven as they don't have to pay
VAT currently at 17%. The main shopping mall in Eilat is the Mall Hayam
not far from the beach front and has a wide range of shops.
At night time, Eilat comes
to life and the Isrotel Wow Latino show is a Latin extravaganza. Wild music,
dancers and virtuosos produce an electrifying atmosphere with artists performing
breathtaking routines. The show is suitable for all the family and reduced
rates are available for Isrotel Hotels' guests.
Eilat is also on a migration
route for millions of birds so it is also a fantastic destination for bird-watchers.
The scenery around Eilat is stunning with desert mountains rising on either
side of the Syrian African Rift Valley.
In the water, the marine
life in Eilat is nothing short of spectacular. There is a rich variety
of coral, fish and more, Scuba diving is popular with visitors and for
those who are not certified divers, snorkelling and glass bottomed boat
trips are other good options for viewing the underwater world. The Underwater
Observatory takes you 6m under the sea, allowing you to view the marine
life as if you were in the ocean.
The Dolphin Reef is home
to a group of Bottlenose dolphins and visitors can see these amazing creatures
in their natural environment. The dolphins are free to come and interact
with divers and snorkellers who come to Dolphin Reef to observe them. For
those who don't want to get into the water, floating piers and observation
points are available.
So with all this and more
to offer, it is easy to see why Eilat holidays are becoming more and more
popular. With hotels to suit all budgets, your Eilat holiday promises you
a true "get away from it all" for the whole family.
