Israel's 10 Best Beaches (and Kobi's Favorites)

Updated: Aug 21, 2020

As you know, Israel is tiny. Depending on which areas one includes or not, it is about the size of New Jersey and Wales, half of Denmark, 1/5 of South Korea and 1/350 of Australia. Despite that fact - and despite the fact that over half the country is desert, it sits on no less than 4 different bodies of water.

We have the Mediterranean Sea, Lake Kinneret (a fresh-water lake mistakenly called the Sea of Galilee), the Dead Sea (actually a salt-water lake) and the the Red Sea (actually the Reed Sea).

As such, we have a number of fantastic beaches - including gorgeous sandy beaches that you'd be hard-pressed to find in much of Europe. Someone made a list of Israel's Top 10 Beaches which I am happy to share with you here.

Personally, I enjoy Jerusalem Beach in Tel Aviv (I know it's weird) with its outdoor gym, volleyball nets, Aroma coffee, etc., the Ein Bokek beaches by the hotels along the Dead Sea (much easier to access than Qalya), the Coral Beach in Eilat (since you can go snorkeling and scuba diving), the Aqueduct Beach of Caesarea (funny enough by an old Roman aqueduct) and the Herzilya beach by the Arena Mall. None of these made the list. But hey, to each his/her own.

Just remember - as a tour guide of Israel, I always recommend - when coming in summer - to take a day or two at the end of your Israel tour to relax along the beach so that when you get home you don't need a vacation from the vacation. Enjoy the fun in the sun :)
