Guests staying at Herods hotels in Eilat really don't need to look far to learn why this metropolitan city has fast become a shopper’s paradise. Malls, shopping centers, boutique shops, and markets can be found scattered throughout the city, each offering duty free shopping. For those planning a trip to region, here’s a look at the very best shopping sites in Eilat.
The best of Eilat shopping centers
What better place to start your shopping trip than Mall HaYam Eilat, the largest mall in Eilat and the most profitable mall in all of Israel. Situated in the heart of Eilat, visitors will find an eclectic mix of local and international brands within the mall, stocking and supplying everything from clothes and linens to electronics and toiletries.
Located on the outskirts of the city, not too far from the airport, Big Mall is a series of outdoor shops and shopping venues. Again, visitors will find a range of recognizable brands, with each store offering an air-conditioned escape from the beating sun. Good news: parking is plentiful and free!
The most unique of all of Eilat’s shopping centers, the Ice Mall offers shopping, dining, and entertainment with a side order of ice. Explore the center and you’ll discover a huge ice rink at the very center of it all.
Herods’ very own shopping center
For guests staying at any of the three Herods hotels in Eilat, shopping couldn’t be any closer. Attached directly to the Herods Palace Hotel, The Cardo offers an upscale shopping experience, one that cries out exclusivity. It may not be one of the biggest shopping sites in Eilat, but past visitors will tell you it’s one not to be missed.
The best of Eilat markets
Eilat malls are just one aspect of the city’s impressive shopping choices. Visitors will also find a variety of markets, some harking back to the bazaars and shuks of time gone by. From fresh food and drink to textiles and trinkets, there’s plenty that’ll have you reaching into your wallet. Visitors looking to get their market fix should definitely visit The Promenade and the adjacent King Solomon Promenade. Recent renovations to The Promenade make it a thoroughly great locale to shop, grab a bite, and enjoy plenty of entertainment.
