After you’ve explored the desert and nature reserves north of Eilat and had a swim with dolphins, try out Green Beach on an inlet of the Red Sea. The climate ensures perfect beach weather, with an average of 360 days without rain per year, to accompany the warm water and fascinating scenery. The beach is much more than simply a place to sunbathe and swim.
One thing that makes this beach different from others in the area is the abundance of palm trees that instantly give a tropical feel to its location. Look to your left over the water to the sun-drenched hills of Jordan’s shore at Aqaba. You will have the convenience of a resort city at your back. The number and variety of hotels allow you to pick one that best suits your need for a family vacation or romantic getaway. Many are just steps away from beaches, including Green Beach.
Stretch out on a sun lounger set up in the warm sands of Green Beach. The area’s lively atmosphere centers on beach huts that provide food and drink. This is a popular place to congregate in Eilat for the younger crowd and the young at heart.
The area is a surf beach when the right conditions occur, generally when storms approach from the south, which doesn’t happen often. Stay out of the water in such conditions, unless you’re an experienced surfer. On other days, the flat waters and sandy ocean bottom are inviting for all, including young children. Let kids explore the shoreline to look for small pebbles and occasional sea urchins.
Plan to spend a day at Eilat’s Green Beach. The secluded area is located past the marina and toward the end of Eilat’s coastal road. It can be a great place to complete your perfect sand and sea vacation in Israel.
