Photographer's Note

Where is the real attraction?
It's under the water! This location is famous for the beautiful coral reef.

This is the Underwater Observatory Marine Park is located 7 kilometers south of Eilat
The Observatory is situated 6 meters below sea level at the bottom of the White Tower which is accessed through a 100 meter bridge. A tunnel joins the two underwater halls, one of which observes the surrounding corals in the underwater reef known as the "Japanese Gardens" while the other gazes at clambering corals and schools of fish, deep into the sun dappled waters of the Red Sea.
A living coral reef has been constructed around the observatories and, since the Underwater Observatory Marine Park does not feed the creatures in the wild, this constructed reef provides a natural habitat which attracts many different kinds of coral-nurtured marine creatures - and the creatures which feed of them.
