I went for a walk at 6am and found this beach to be almost deserted and the water warm enough to enjoy a vigorous swim even though its November. The sea was flat as a mirror on both days. Most enjoyable and recommended.

Clean sand beach, with a cafe and very clean toilet. Facilities to rent. Great see. You can switch to Mosh beach near to it, with another style (Sinai-like).

What a terrific way to spend the day, crystal clear water, a friendly beach restaurant, usually a nice place to sit in the off season. As other reviewers have said, there are sea urchins so footwear is a must, but at least you can look down and see them. There are 2 carpets leading out from the beach into the... More

We were recommended this place, but I would not recommend it to a friend. The beach is not very clean, small and loud.

Feels like you are in your own private beach. Find a cabana and chill. Great for good swimmers, no lifeguard. Watch out for the sea urchins.

Just love this place. Not the prettiest/swankiest/best appointed beach in Eilat but it is so relaxed and laid back and friendly and I enjoy a light lunch with some unfiltered chetzi Goldstar (ok I'll have one more).
