I stumble upon this city in google street view and it looked really interesting in a desert sort of a way. It's the southern most city in Israel. It's on the northern tip of the Red Sea and is big in tourism.

This is the type of climate Galaxyman would love.

Eilat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For myself I rate this a B. Summers are too hot but for the rest of the year temperatures are nice. For precipitation summers are fine but winters are way too dry. The main plus is no chance of snow and cold.

Too hot for most of the year, especially during the summer. Winters barely acceptable enough to save it from a F.

I bet that water in the Gulf of Aqaba is really warm in the summer. Looks neat. Great amount of sunshine. Too hot, though, so the best I can give it is a C+.

For living, a clear F. Though I wouldn't mind to go there for a few days in summer to enjoy the beach and and the heat.

Looks like the desert doesn't have very many fans.
