Eliat is a resort town wedged directly between Jordan and Egypt. Being that the city was only built in the 1950s, there aren't any historical sights to visit, but there are many beaches to lounge on and lots of people-watching to be had.
Eliat also sports some nice reefs for snorkeling, with hundreds of different species of fish to spy on. We spent a day at the Coral Beach Nature Reserve and appreciated that although it is a popular place, they've gone to great lenghts to protect the reef by marking underwater trails to follow and diligently patrolling for people kicking, standing on, or otherwise abusing the coral.

We were able to rent a flat in Eliat as well (same price as a hostel, go figure) which made it a nice base for a couple of days.
