The southern resort city of Eilat is planning a new initiative to help its residents and tourists who visit the area learn to appreciate its beautiful Red Sea shoreline.

The move comes in response to a gift of a section of the company beach from the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline firm — a part of the shoreline considered to be the most beautiful beach spot in the tourist hotspot.


The municipality is planning an ecological beach and environmental education center in order to educate the public about the treasures that await beneath the waves, and how Israel is working to preserve them.

The initiative will become a part of Eilat’s shoreline development for the segment stretching from Eilat south to Taba and Aqaba.
