See Amazing Marine LifeThe beaches, nightlife, and desert landscapes of Eilat make it a popular destination for both local and international visitors, but it also has a unique coral reef in the Red Sea. Eilat’s Underwater Observatory Marine Park is in the heart of the reef, and visitors can view more than 800 species of fish, coral, sharks, mollusks, stingrays, and turtles that are native to the region. The park offers guided tours and excursions, such as cruising the shoreline on the Coral 2000, a glass-bottom boat. On the park's premises is a number of snack bars, cafés, and souvenir shops, as well as the Shark Bay restaurant.
