Coral Reef Nature Reserve a.k.a. Shmurat HaTeva Hof Almog - Kodak underwater cameras don't do this place justice.
Coral Reef Nature Reserve a.k.a. Shmurat HaTeva Hof Almog - Believe it or not I had to water these suckers. A fruitless task when it rains here 1 day a year (if that).

I volunteered here last summer. This is in the top 5 best places to snorkel in the world. You'll see tons of different types of coral and crazzzzy amounts of tropical fish - tigerfish, parrot fish, blue spotted sting rays, boxfish...i could go on for ages. Although you can't take scuba lessons through the reserve, you can snorkel and if you take lessons from another place, odds are you'll swim through it. Ask rangers where Moses' Rock and Aaron's Rock are - they have buoys to mark them off but there are lots of different shaped buoys along the perimeter of the park so you're best off just to ask. Bring your own snorkel gear unless you want to rent -- and take it from someone whose been behind the scenes - you'll want to bring your own. They don't get "cleaned". Ever. Also -- nominate someone to bring your sandals to the south deck BEFORE you enter the water. If you enter the water from the north deck and then leave your sandals there, your feet WILL be scorched. 45 degree celsius weather is the norm in the middle of summer and hot sand is not forgiving. Bring your own water otherwise it's pricey -- but the popsicles from the food stand are cheap.

AND ONE LAST THING - don't take ANY souvenirs - living, dead or even inanimate. You will get caught and they will charge you! Lots of people forget that it is a reserve.
