The area around North Beach offers a wide variety of stores including bookstores, children’s wear and fashion boutiques. Also familiar international brands and designers, for lower prices can be found. Look out for Israeli names such as the imaginative, romantic clothes and jewellery of Michal Negrin.
Along the North Beach promenade, stalls offer cheap fashions and hippy-style crafts, beachwear and souvenirs. Note that no VAT or sales tax (normally 18 per cent) is charged in Eilat. For better quality items, with genuine brand names, head to the eastern end of the promenade beyond the north lagoon.
