On your Holy Land Tour you may want to enjoy some time on 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.
Achziv is the northernmost beach of Israel
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.
Our favorite beach in Haifa is Hof HaCarmel

Netanya is an important Beach City on the Mediterranean
Tel Aviv beaches bordered by hotels and condominium
Tel Aviv Beaches
Tel Aviv is famous for its beaches. Its beaches are many and they stretch from the north near Herzliya to the sister city of Yafo. Some of them are very crowded with locals and tourists alike.
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.
There are many beaches surrounding the Sea of Galilee

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.
Kalia Beach is one of the best beaches on the Dead Sea
Dead Sea Israel
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 the main attraction of 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.
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.
