The Best Beaches in Israel
Israeli Beach - There are actually 137 beaches in total; Some of the most beautiful I have
ever seen. Yes, I have been to the Caribbean and Mexico, as well as all coastlines in the States and some of the Beaches in Israel top them all.
What I think makes the Israel Beach so unique are the crystal clear blue and turquoise
waters combined with the natural undisturbed coastlines. Not just that, but what is truly
unique about Israel is that you have four distinctly different bodies of water; The
Mediterranean, Red Sea by Eilat, Dead Sea, and Kinneret.
This makes for an diverse mixture of beaches and coastlines.
Being a self described beach lover myself, I have visited many Beaches in
Israel and here are my top Israeli Beach recommendations:
Israeli Beach - Mediterranean Sea along the coastline running South to North.
Israeli Beach - Sea of Galilee (Kinneret)
Israeli Beach - Dead Sea
- Ein Gedi Beach: A spa and resort located on the shores of the Dead Sea
(the lowest point on Earth. It is well known the amazing healing properties of this region.
The beach is connected to the spa by a man made narrow roadway that you can hike (about ½ mile long)
or take a free tram ride. The beach area is very clean with lounging chairs and bamboo covered
shady areas. After a dip - a float I should say in the mineral rich waters, you will need to rinse off.
There are showers located on the beach.
Ein Gedi Beach Dead Sea
Word of Caution: Stay in only marked areas as there are sinkholes present throughout this area.
Also, I highly recommend sandals or water shoes as the shores of the Sea are quite rough with sharp
rocks and difficult to enter in bare feet.
Israeli Beach - Red Sea (Eilat)
- Coral Beach Nature Reserve (Eilat): In one word it is
breathtaking. The clearest most beautiful water and underwater coral reef nature reserve I have ever seen.
You can swim, snorkel, or scuba dive and see the most brilliant colorful fish and coral formations.
There are showers and changing areas, but not much in the way of restaurants and cafes. You will need
to go towards the boardwalk and hotels. Not the best area for ordinary swimming (I recommend the hotel
beach areas). Please be aware of burning coral and spiny sea urchins.
Coral Beach Eilat
- Dolphin Reef Beach (Eilat): The Dolphin Reef Eilat
is an ecological site where you have the unique opportunity to actually observe dolphins up close in their
own natural habitat. A group of bottle-nose dolphins, including some born at the site, carry on their daily
lives of hunting, mating, and playing.
