Where the desert meets the Red Sea

Arrive at Ovda International Airport and you’ll almost certainly be heading for Eilat, where the Southern Negev Desert meets the Red Sea. Basking in year-round sunshine, with plentiful beaches, rugged desert hinterland, great diving and pulsating nightlife, Eilat is a refreshing antidote to the crowds of the Med or the flashy megaresorts of the Arabian Gulf.
