Guaranteed sunshine is one of the main reasons families adore holidays in Eilat, Israel's most southerly resort.
If you like it hot, then holidays to Eilat are definitely for you...
Nestled between Jordan and Egypt and surrounded by desert, Eilat is a real draw for sun seekers who like it hot. And with amazing diving in the Red Sea, bargains to excite even the most hardened shopaholic and a wide variety of eateries to suit every taste and pocket, it's not hard to see why.
The shores of the Red Sea offer some of the best beaches in the Middle East, and the waters present a cooling respite from the heat of the summer sun. The sea is also a wondrous playground for divers keen to explore the corals and exotic fish that populate the shallows.
You don't have to dive underwater to enjoy wildlife during Eilat holidays, though. Bird watchers flock to the resort to witness the twice-yearly phenomenon of mass migration as millions of birds navigate their way between Europe and Africa. And fans of natural beauty will love escaping the town and taking in the splendour of the Eilat Mountains, where you will see an array of ever-changing canyons.
Back in resort, there is a generous collection of restaurants, from upmarket or romantic, to relaxed and family friendly. There are also plenty of street food stalls where you can try local delicacies – including Eilat's delicious take on the falafel.
Thanks to the carefully planned resort's well laid out facilities for holidaymakers of all kinds, you won't be bored in Eilat. However, anyone who likes shopping will probably spend most of their time browsing and buying once they realise how inexpensive goods are in Eilat. There are dozens of malls and arcades selling everything imaginable, and all VAT free. The town also has its own airport, Eilat Airport (ETH), meaning that you won't have too far to transport your purchases on your way home.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
