Hof Almog חוף אלמוג

Recommended by: Judy
Don't often see posts here about Eilat. There are all the obvious places which we've been to every year for the past 5 yrs. This time we found somewhere we hadn't been before further down the coast - chof almog. Stunning beach, crystal clear waters where you can see amazing fish in the shallow water right up by the shore. Head further out to sea - accessed by one of the piers - and snorkel with more fish and get a really excellent view of the coral reef - far better than from glass bottomed boat etc. It's a national park (free entry with national parks card) so it's well looked after, has sun shades, is open til 7 pm, has clean toilets/ showers. Also has a shop with snacks (crisps, ice cream etc) and souvenirs. We spent 2 hours here yesterday with kids aged 12, 9, 7, 2.5 and 6 mths, and a full afternoon again today - highly recommended!!
Type: Beach (snorkeling recommended). Free if you have a Matmon card. Otherwise there is a fee.

Hog Almog is a national park where you can snorkel over the corals to see the fish, or walk to the end of the wooden jetty and look down into the water if you don't feel like actually going in the water. There is another jetty like that on the beach roughly opposite the Princess Hotel I think, where you can walk out over the water and look down to see the fish.
I would warmly recommend hof almog as an alternative to the dolphins which can get packed. No dolphins, but it's a shmurat teva beach (free to go in if you've got a card, around 35₪ if not), they've got a beach area but mostly awesome because they have bridges to the reefs; jump in from the end and see a host of underwater life. You can also hire equipment including mask and snorkel for very cheap. Showers and toilets clean and nice. Also have shade on the beach.The hof almog beach is near the aquarium. When we wanted to go to town we parked in parking lot next to mall.
