Eilat Is The Southernmost City in Israel

While the majority of cities and towns in Israel are located on the Mediterranean shore or relatively close to it, Eilat is located on the tip of the Red Sea. Here’s a map of Gulf of Eilat/Gulf of Aqaba (which also borders Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia):

The Red Sea is the world’s northernmost tropical sea, and has a variety of stunning marine life and corals. As such, it is a major target for divers. My lazy self is not a diver, though, even though I like to swim, so I really appreciate the existence of underwater observatories.

Enter The Underwater Observatory, or in its full name: Coral World Underwater Observatory.

The tower has a high vantage point (well, it’s a tower after all) but we skipped that part, and went directly underwater. Walking down the stairs, you get to see what lies beneath 6 meters of sea levels. It’s truly beautiful.
