    sardines on the beach

    by shovava Written May 30, 2007

    ...who doesn't like the beach life???sun, surf, snorkelling, scuba diving in the red sea??Nice cold beer to top off the day's activities??...However, Eilat, like most tourist areas in and around the world, has all of the above to offer, and more!!!BUT - if you are looking for a secluded beach, with next to nil inhabitants, you will be sorely mistaken..Eilat in the height of summer is a high priority destination for Israelis themselves, and other wanderers from around the globe..you can literally ask your fellow beach neighbour to rub sunscreen on your body, whilst trading cigarettes, and fumbling for lighters...this is one of many sights you will be able to experience, while trying to hide behind your latest copy of your favourite author..you can always expect a beach 'waitress' to ask you whether or not you would like a refreshing beer/ice slurpy, but be warned, if tempted to go to the bathroom after downing a few, padlock your sunchair to your kind neighbour and profusely explain through broken hebrew, 'i need to go to the bathroom', 'it is your fault if my chair has been taken through my absence!!!'..but do not expect him/her to care if you are going to meet the queen, Israeli's simply go to the beach to partake in the many available watersports, have a quiet beer with maybe a token 'shakta', with an added game of 'shesbesh'..(backgammon)..they are not there to accomodate a lost tourist, or play 'security guard' over a plot of sand space..They will merely use this as an oppurtunity, to take precious 'centimetres' of sand space you had graciously fought for, two hours previously..so, smile, have fun...and enjoy the life...Israelis have many beautiful people to look at, and are a very boisterous culture, so if you don't mind listening to other people talk about their latest aquisition, or don't mind the whiff of mother natures many herbal products...go to eilat in israel..your beach sardine in a can!!!

    This beach is one of the southern beaches of Eilat and quite far from the center and its more crowded and noisy beaches.
    This is my favorit beach... always nice and quiet there, watching to the other side of the bay on the Jordanian beaches and mountains. Listening to world music in the background, some beers and the beautiful sea.

    A nice beach, far from the center (well far is a relatively word in Eilat) towards the Egyptian border.
    A very relaxed atmosphere and also a diving club.
