Enjoy some of Israel Beaches. This country located on the Eastern Mediterranean is blessed by many beaches. After all Israel features four seas, which are the Med, the Red, the Dead and the Sea of Galilee.
Israel's long Mediterranean coast features amazing beaches
The Israeli coast runs from the border of Lebanon in the north to the border with the Gaza Strip in the south. Going to the beach is part of Israel Culture. I will mention just the most known and keep adding beaches as we develop this site.
Runs from Nahariya to Rosh Hanikra near the Lebanese border, is part of the Achziv National Park and offer all kind of sports like cycling, hiking, fishing and swimming.
This is a beautiful sandy beach frequented by locals as well as tourists. You can have fun and do lots of sports besides swimming in the cool waters.
Hof Hacarmel is a popular beach south of Haifa
Israel Beaches on the Mediterranean
There are quite a few beaches running from Acco, through Haifa Bay to the southern part of the city behind Mount Carmel. A few in Kiryat Yam and Kiryat Haim and then nothing happens in Haifa itself because of the port that occupies all downtown coast.
On the southern part of the city, I love Bat Galim next to Rambam Hospital. And a little further south Hof Ha Carmel or Carmel Beach that features a nice promenade with cafes and restaurants as well as lockers for swimmers.
Caesarea Aqueduct Beach
This is a beautiful beach near the Roman Aqueduct of Caesarea. You can swim in the area, walk the ancient ruins, rest and eat. It is a great place to relax.
It is one of the best in Israel. It is well kept by the Municipality and the water is nice. It is crowded only on weekends. What’s peculiar to this beach is that it is located down the bluff where the city is.
This is a short strip surrounded by a few condominiums and Deluxe Hotels. They have all kind of facilities for swimmers.
Tel Aviv is the Miami Beach of the Mediterranean
Tel Aviv Beaches
Tel Aviv is famous for its beaches. Recently the National Geographic Magazine named Tel Aviv as the “Miami Beach of the Mediterranean” Please visit our page dedicated to Tel Aviv Beaches
Israel Beaches on the South
There are great beaches on the towns south of Tel Aviv, like Bat Yam, Ashdod, Palmachim, Nitzanim and Ashkelon. They are well organized and with all facilities for the visitors.
The Sea of Galilee is surrounded by awesome beaches
Sea of Galilee Beaches
The whole Lake Kineret is surrounded by beaches. It is a sweet water lake, so don’t expect to be in a beach of the Mediterranean. But they are very nice kept and offer all kind of services to the beach-goers.
Ein Gev Resort Village Beach on the east side of the lake is the number one of my favorites in the Kineret area. They have shades, trees, great clean waters to swim and above all what I like the most the fish.
It is a special treat to your palate. There is one catch: You have to be a guest of the Village to be able to use the beach.
Dead Sea swimming of perhaps "floating"
Every Hotel and Guest House has “its beach”. The beaches are public and anybody can swim, but at the hotels you can have lockers and shower facilities.
In each one of the public beaches you’ll find a public shower of sweet water. If you go into the Dead Sea that is so salty you will want to shower as soon as possible.
Ein Gedi Beach as mentioned in its page is very well kept with showers and cafeteria. I will repeat what I said already; beware of any cuts or stings in your skin because it burns when you go into the water.
And one more thing to remember, because of the salinity of the water you will barely be able to sink. Your body feels like a cork.
Eilat is Israel's Riviera on the Red Sea
Red Sea Israel Beaches
Here I will mention just the Israeli Red Sea Beaches. Jordan and Egypt have great beaches. Eilat beaches at the Red Sea are several. The ones across the hotel strip are not so sandy and actually have many stones. The water is cool and delicious.
Coral Beach Nature Reserve
This is near the best reefs. The area is great for snorkeling and Red Sea Diving, not so good for swimming.
Dolphin Reef Beach
It is the most picturesque beach in Eilat. Here the dolphins are and has lots of shade and very good for swimming.
Israel Beaches are there for the tourist that after visiting the Holy sites and nonstop touring wants to take a break of a good swim and relaxation.
