Overview

Welcome to The Botanical Garden of Eilat (in the organic farm) On the northern border of the town of Eilat is hidden a spectacularly beautiful garden - the botanical garden of Eilat. The garden was created on a former military outpost and is built on stone terraces in ancient Biblical style. Inside the garden there are rare plants from all over the world, a reconstructed stream, waterfalls, enchanting walking tracks, signposting, seating areas, bird sanctuaries and its crowning glory, a rain forest. The rain forest is the first of its kind in the world! A cool and refreshing experience for all the family. Does it sound like the Garden of Eden? That's just what it's like. In the Park: Plant nursery, sales centre, herbal teas and organic coffee, ice lollies and more

Сад маленький, но сделан с огромной любовью. Если у вас есть час свободного времени, то очень советую посетить. Сам факт, что в жаркой пустыни можно вырастить такой прекрасный сад, уже поражает. The garden is small, but made with love. If you have one hour of...More

The spot is nice but quite run down and not very well maintained. Entrance of ILS 78 is too high. The place has definitely seen better days!

You learn about how one grows tropical trees in a dessert climate. If possible take a guided tour. A great family experience

A small but charming Botanical Garden is full of information from desert plants to rain forests. It is also a beautiful place to enjoy the view. You may also buy local plants which er grown in a nursery.
