Sleeping on the beach and diving

by Katusa

We're planning to do a diving course in Eilat in July. We're three 3 students so the budget is rather tight. We heard it is possible to sleep on the beach. Does anybody know if there are certain areas where it is allowed? Or are there diving schools who let you sleep on their property?

Thanks in advance for any reply!

In the "old days" I didn't had any problems sleeping there on the beach and so there were many who do so. However, these days it is not that common or safe and maybe the police and security wouldn't like it either. Of course, you can still try sleep on the beach and home that no one will care. Alternative try to get cheap hostel or sleep in somewhere as plan B.

The Eilat Field School offers camping in front of the Almog beach, in the field school area, where you can camp with tents. Among the camping services the site is offering there are also toilets, showers, lighting, shaded areas and electricity connections.

Also if you pay a bit you can get an amenity-served campsite in the Coral Beach area. SPNI Field School has a shaded campsite that is open year-round. It has clean bathrooms and showers, and a basic cafeteria.

Re: Sleeping on the beach and diving

Hi and Shalom:
There are several beaches where it should be possible to sleep on the beach, some quite near the diving schools. I would suggest contacting the diving schools themselves and asking them about the camping, they live and work there and will be up to date on the possibilities.
Enjoy, Eilat and the diving are beautiful.

Yes it's possible, No, i wouldn't recommend it for more than one night.
There are cheap alternatives for staying in Eilat including camping, guest-house and rooms-too-let, as suggested above. You'll be much safer/comfortable there.

enjoy!

Travel Tips for Eilat

Crossing from Aqaba to Eilat

by SWFC_Fan

I made the crossing from Aqaba in Jordan to Eilat in Israel during a visit to the region in February 2005.

With tensions always running high in the Middle East, we wondered how difficult it would be to cross between the two countries. After an initial setback on the first day that we tried to cross, it proved to be a very straightforward crossing.

On our first attempt, we hailed a taxi from outside our hotel and asked to be taken to the border (a mere 5 minutes away). After passing through a police checkpoint we arrived at the border. The taxi driver exchanged a few words with the border guard and we were told that we couldn't cross the border. However, we weren't told *why* we couldn't cross the border. We were just told to "try again tomorrow".

Back at our hotel, we asked the receptionist why we couldn't cross. He didn't know either, but made a few phone calls and informed us that the border was closed on the Israeli side as it was a public holiday there to mark the Prophet Mohammed's birthday.

The following day, we again took a taxi to the border and this time we had no problems. After passing through Jordanian customs and getting our exit stamps, we found ourselves in a barren wasteland with a 100 metre walk ahead to the daunting sight of the Israeli border (and its heavily armed guards).

We then faced plenty of questions about why we wanted to visit Israel (the nice beaches, the fancy shopping malls, the bustling restaurants, the chance to get another stamp in our passports), why we were only carrying one backpack between us (we were only crossing over for a day trip) and the usual barrage of personal questions regarding our occupations, sufficiency of funds and such like. My backpack was emptied and searched in its entirity. After about 10 minutes we were told that we were fine to enter the country and wished a pleasant stay. On our return, we had to pay a fairly hefty departure tax to leave Israel and then pay for another visa to re-enter Jordan.

Our crossing was pretty straightforward, but the guidebook does warn that the border can close with little warning as political circumstances in the region change.

City Center

by edvin_br

Eilats Center is a small area with many shops and resturants, some of the cities hotels are also there. There is a new tourist center in the city Center.
to get to the city Center when you atrrive to Eilat you continue forward from the airport a bit, when you will see the big mall in the Center you will know you are there. If you turn left you will get to the hotels area and if you will go right you will get to the residental part of the city. I also saw a building in a style of Pyramid, called "IMAX" but i dont know for what it used but it looks good.

Packing List

by Anunanu

I was there in October, it was REALLY warm to me (hey, I'm scandinavian!!!) If I return there some day would pag lots of t-shirts, shorts sandals...and swimming suit of course! I musn't forget sunglasses and sun lotion eather!! take with you lots of sun lotion!!

Water sports

by ophiro

If you prefer more active sport than swimming or diving there are some activities here for you .

You can enjoy speed boats , jet ski , ski surfing , pedal boats and many more.

You can ask on every hotel for those places but you can't miss them if you will walk around the beaches.

Timna Park

by HJIL

Park on the road to Eilat with interesting sandstone formations, and an ancient cave painting. Must have a car or the hike is hours and very hot! With a car you can drive to each point of interest so it is no problem
