The coastal community of Eilat is located at the southern tip of Israel, and consists mainly of a four-mile strip of beach along the Red Sea. To say that the town is a resort community would be an understatement. Partying, water sports, desert activities, and other recreational activities attract large numbers of tourists annually, meaning that the local population is vastly outnumbered by tourists most times of the year. It’s a great place to cut loose and soak up some sun, but it isn’t a great choice for culturally inclined travelers (the exception to this being the recently opened biblical theme park, Kings City).
