    Timna park

    Just 30 minutes north of Eilat, the UNESCO-protected Timna Park  is an ancient wonder. Experience the breathtaking scenery, take a tour of Ancient King Solomon's mine and see mushroom-shaped rocks. Learn all about the history and geology of the park and even choose to stop for Bedouin tea if you so feel like it!

    Most hotels in Eilat can arrange Jeep tours to Timna Park, or you can take your own car. Although this is one of the further-out attractions in Eilat, if you love nature then Timna Park is an unmissable Eilat attraction.

    Dolphin Reef and Snorkelng

    Meet some of Eilat’s cheekiest residents! Dolphin Reef Eilat is a conservation area for these local aquatic citizens. You can also book to snorkel with the dolphins from the age of 10 plus.
