Dolphin beach is one of the nicest places of Eilat nature. You can rest there or take an adventure to dive with dolphins. It is not chip pleasure, but once it worth to take it. We spent there all day and really enjoyed it.

Maybe because we didn't have good weather that day, the visit was just OK. Saw some dolphins, didn't enjoy the beach so much. Love the idea that dolphins are free.

I don't like places that keep dolphins because I feel we should not be doing it. They should be free. Eilat is different. Here the dolphins stay because they like it. The place is opened to the sea and all the dolphins may come and...More

I believe so. But just do it. They'll probably charge you if you ask.
