The South of Israel covers well over 50% of the country’s land area. It might be sparsely populated, but it is brimming with fascinating sites and activities. The Negev Desert is an adventurer’s playground with amazing natural wonders and beauty, outdoor activities, and history, culture, and memories. At the southern tip, overlooking the Red sea, lies the resort city of Eilat. This seaside paradise is a tourism hub and a great base for excursions to the Negev or activities like snorkling and swimming with dolphins.
