Shelter Eilat Background


Eilat is located in a unique position between the mountains and the sea. This ensures a wide variety of sea sports including diving and snorkeling amidst the beautiful coral reefs as well as the opportunity to swim with the dolphins. There are beautiful hikes in the canyons around Eilat and in TimnaPark. The shared borders with the Sinai in Egypt and with Jordan allow for easy access to the attractions in these countries. The Shelter is the ideal jumping off place for your adventures, and our 30 years in Eilat enables us to advise you concerning all your vacation and travel plans.
