Travel from Sharm El Sheikh to Eilat

by kath_s

Hi all,

I am planning a trip at the end of November and am trying to organize how to travel from Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt to Eilat. Could you please let me know what are our options for travel (flights, bus, taxi) are? How long would it take and what would be the approximate cost?

Also, we are then planning to spend 1 night in Eilat and then travel to Tel Aviv. What would be our options for travel with this route?

I would appreciate any suggestions that you can provide.

Thanks,
Kate

Travel Tips for Eilat

Gulf of Eilat

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Gulf of Aqaba in Israel known as the Gulf of Eilat is a large gulf of the Red Sea.
The Gulf is located to the east of the Sinai Peninsula and west of the Arabian mainland. Jordan, Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia all have coastlines on the Gulf. It reaches a maximum depth of 1850m in its central part.
Geologically, the Gulf of Aqaba is an integral part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa through the Red Sea and northwards towards the rift valley containing the Dead Sea.

You can watch my 3 min 53 sec HD Video Eilat Aqaba Gulf Yacht Galaxy part 1 out of my Youtube channel.

You can watch my high resolution photo of Eilat on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 29° 32' 47.89" N 34° 58' 0.71" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Eilat Gulf.

Russian is very popular in Israel!

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The most pleasant thing for me it was to see inscriptions in Russian everywhere in Eilat, haha! Russian is among four main languages in Israel. Hebrew, Arabic and Russian for locals and English for foreigners!
Have a look at my photo with inscriptions in Russian:
“Danger! Jumping off the bridge is strictly forbidden!”

Airodium - learning to fly - dressing up

by Martin_S.

Well if you cannot call flying like a bird an extreme sport, then at least you can call the costume you dress up in to be ABLE to do it an extreme costume, you look sort of like a court jester from King Arthur...
But you don't feel quite as silly as you look because everybody looks as silly as you do. We are in the flying arena itself, you sit around the edges and receive your last instructions and your last rites (no only kidding).

Yotvata animal park

by counsel14

You’ll enjoy a different kind of wildlife experience at Hai Bar Yotvata, 30 minutes north of Eilat. Here, you drive the few miles through the reserve: seeing animals along the way – the oryx (believed to be the origin of the unicorn myth, since in profile their pair of scimitar-shaped horns appear as one) Somali wild asses, addaxes, ostriches and more.

The INPA ranger who greets you can rent you a CD to play in your car, which describes the animals and tells unusual stories about their habits and even the idiosyncrasies of some individuals. Your tour ends with a visit to the Night Life Room where dimly lit enclosures reveal the desert’s nocturnal denizens, and the predator center, home to spotted leopards, wolves, the giant-eared caracal, snakes and more.

I seriously recommend renting the CD for your car. otherwise you won't have a clue what some of these creatures are!

Havat Arundel (on the road to Eilat)

by Martin_S.

This small hill in the middle of the desert was fortified by the Jordanians and then used later by the Golani (Israeli Army Unit) in 1949 as an outpost for protection against terrorist attacks over the Jordanian border.
You can see how stark was the "accomodations", just some trenches and fortified points on top of the hill with few of the comforts of home...but it was a high point and easier to protect, so there it is. Try to imagine living in conditions of that type with your only connection to "civilization" a weekly truck bringing supplies. No mobile phones, no land lines, not even a simple television.
