Spend the day in the Eilat region snorkeling or scuba diving in the Gulf of Eilat, one of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world.
A hike or drive up to Mount Tsefahot affords a view of three countries – Israel, Jordan and Egypt, are among one of many nature experiences in the area. You can also visit Timna Park, north of Eilat, which is an excellent example of an industrial facility (copper-mining) turned into a nature reserve. Timna is home to amazing natural phenomena: King Solomon's Pillars, the "Mushroom", and "Arches." See fascinating remnants of primitive cultures at the "Chariots" rock carvings, the Shrine of Hathor, and ancient copper furnaces. Marvel at the remarkable new multimedia presentation, “'Mines of Time.” Explore King Solomon's Mines, where copper-mining first began over six millennia ago.
