Travel — Mid-East
Fun Things To Do in Israel
Rich in history and culture, great restaurants and miles of sandy
beaches, Israel is one of the world's most fascinating destinations. For such a small country, Israel offers lots of variety, including art, history and culture, festivals, fun water sports, boutique wineries, adventure activities... and more! Popular areas include:
Climb Masada and watch the sunrise overlooking the Dead Sea (it's well worth getting up at the crack of dawn) — the views
are absolutely spectacular!
Go swimming in (or floating on) the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. The water
is so salty, you actually "float" on the surface — it's
an amazing experience!
Red Sea Beach Resort
Travel to the southernmost tip of Israel (see map
right) to visit the Red Sea beach resort of Eilat. Gorgeous beaches, year-round
diving in the Red Sea, fun water sports, bird-watching, and hot nightlife,
make Eilat a popular tourist destination.
Ein Gedi & Nature Reserve
Visit the beautiful oasis of Ein Gedi and
its Nature Reserve, located near the Dead Sea and Masada — famous
for its springs, caves and rich diversity of plants and wildlife.
Gan HaShlosha National Park
Be sure to visit Sahne, located near Beit She'an in northern
Israel (between Jerusalem and Nazareth). Famous for
its hot springs and beautiful waterfalls, the National Park is
built on a
spring with naturally
heated water — it's no surprise that Sachne is a popular swimming destination
with the locals.
