With access to both the Mediterranean and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea you can appreciate the diving diversity that Israel has to offer.
In the Mediterranean, don’t miss out on the Rosh HaNikra Caverns, unique chalk caverns that are constantly being whittled away by the water. Accessible from the shoreline, you can just jump right in and check out the fantastic grottoes and caves.
The most epic dive in the Red Sea can be found at the Eel Garden. Hundreds of sand eels peer from up from the sand, daring you to get a closer look.
Also, don’t miss out on the Coral Beach Nature Reserve. This protected space makes a home for huge corals, all spread out in fanatastic gardens. The large rocks called Abraham and Moses are a great spot to see the abundance of reef fish. Don’t miss out on the Japanese Gardens, a highly safeguarded site.
Wreck divers, be sure to check out the Satil in the Red Sea. You can reach this ship by the shore, which is unusual for this region. You can swim through the engine room and the missile launching area, all only a stone’s throw away from the beach. Keep an eye out for lionfish during your adventure.
