I had a great time in Eilat, it’s about 3 1/2 hours from Tel Aviv but worth the trip. Eilat is in the middle of the desert so is extremely hot especially in summer but the Red Sea is amazing and the sea life that’s there is worth seeing. Highly suggest!!

Notable for warm weather, beaches, the beautiful coral reefs, and its proximity to Egypt and Jordan, Eilat also has some great hiking in the nearby mountains.

If you think Israel is just doom and gloom and desert landscapes, think again. Eilat is THE party beach on the Red Sea.
