The reserve is under considerable tourists pressure, but somehow it keeps its beauty. Most of the corals are alive and colorful. The fish keep swimming, ignoring the tourists... Access is very easy, especially compared to other equivalent places in the world. Recommended!

We visited the place in April with the objection to see the reef. We were fully aware that it is not the biggest and most colorful reef in the world but looking at the pictures I was expecting a little bit more. Pros: - it has newly renovated office and shop - the staff is helpful and moderately nice :)... More

The snorkeling was quite poor. The area allotted to snorkel was covered with jellyfish and trash. On my whole route from one dock AND BACK, I saw at most 5 fish and at least 15 pieces of trash.

Really enjoyable couple of hours. Well set up site with shade, hot showers and equipment to hire. Rafts in the water to hold on to and clearly marked reef. Not too busy so could enjoy the experience at your own pace, although the water was pretty cold.

We spent a whole day at the Beach, entrance Fee pr person 35 NIS. At first, I wasen't sure if the Fee was worth the money, I generally I find it a little bit over the top to pay such a expensive Fee. But what you get is tranquility (all the Riff Raffi is gone), reasonable clean Beach and a... More

Among the many diving spots around Eilat, this is definitely one of the bests for diving and snorkeling. The entrance fee is reasonable, snorkeling equipment for rent, as well as chairs and tables to relax.

It's easy to go snorkeling at the end of two piers. Pretty small swim area. Stony surf not suitable for small children. Avoid on windy days, gets quite cold.

We love to snorkel so we visited this Reserve, long beach almost nobody there, no restaurant, so we decided only to snorkel, but because we had to stay behind ropes, there was not a lot to see. If you love snorkeling go snorkeling at the border with Egypt, in front of the last hotel there are two piers where you... More
