The official swimming season might have passed by already, but some of you may be crazy enough to agree with me that winter is the best time of year to go scuba diving or snorkeling since there aren’t thousands of tourists on the beaches, as there are in the summertime.

When the beaches of northern and central Israel have become cool and rainy, the beaches in Eilat remain relatively warm. Two of the ideal locations to catch a glimpse of the natural coral reefs up close are the Dolphin Reef and the Coral Beach Nature Reserve. Most people have heard about Eilat’s fantastically blue water, but not everyone knows about the incredible treasures that lie beneath the surface of the water.
