Dolphin Reef – my favorite attraction is a dolphin reef with a group of “house dolphins” who maintain their natural daily routine on the site. It is an ecological site unique in Israel and throughout the world where visitors can enjoy a natural atmosphere, magical views, secluded beach, together with the unusual opportunity of meeting and observing dolphins in their natural habitat.

Entrance fee: Adult (from age 15) NIS 42, Child (age 5-15) NIS 28, children under the age of 5 enter for free.

Imax 3D

Eilat’s latest attraction, and is a 3D movie theatre. It is located next to the airport and the main city square in a pyramid shaped building. Tickets are 55 NIS per adult and 45 NIS per child, and only children over the age of 6 are allowed. There are usually 5 shows a day during low season (winter), and 10-12 shows a day during high season (summer). A very nice experience, as well as a good way to spent those hot 42 degrees centigrade days…
