In the reserve you can travel in jeeps or ATVs, enjoy a track Its beautiful beach, from the huge mangrove groves that grow right in the water, to dive or snorkel at the spectacular diving sites in the area, to rest in a Bedouin tent located on the spot, etc. The trip to the Navek reserve is recommended for a whole day, with an attached car and preferably with a guide who knows the area and the attractions there.

Opening hours of the reserve: every day from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
