Is Eilat good for solo travel?


Safety:Very safe

Eilat is considered fairly safe for solo female travelers. The city is tourist-friendly given its status as a holiday resort town and experiences lower crime rates compared to other cities in the region. However, like in any other destination, it's essential to stay alert and aware of your surroundings, particularly at night or when in less crowded areas. Always take precautions about your personal safety and belongings. It is also good to observe local etiquette and dress codes, out of respect and to avoid unwanted attention.


Eilat is quite visitor-friendly with a manageable size. Often, it's possible to get around by foot due to its compactness, especially areas around the beach and main strip. A variety of transportation options are available including bike rentals, taxis, and bus services. English is widely spoken and most signs are in English too, making navigation relatively smooth.

Couple travel experience

We were in Eilat for a few days at the beginning of the year and it was wonderful. We rented a car, we had a great hotel, and we even went diving in February. There were colorful deserts, hills, waterfalls, and the Dead Sea.

Is Eilat safe for women?



It depends where you go but most of the city feels pretty safe to me. If you go to the sea in the evening there might be someone there alone as well, but usuallt each mind their own business. I think it is pretty safe
