Surfboards cover the sand and kites fill the sky at this beach situated between the cliff of Beit Yanai and Tel Michmoret. This stretch provides both tranquility and excitement. While it is typically full of energy, a quick stroll up north will bring you to a peaceful, private piece of sand and water.

The Dead Sea

Natural Feature

The Dead Sea in Israel, 400 meters below sea level, is the lowest point on Earth, nestled between the mountains of the Judean Desert. The Dead Sea is a beautiful oasis and the ultimate organic spa; its minerals are beneficial to health and skin care. Floating in the sea and rubbing the special Dead Sea mud on your body are a must for complete relaxation of your body and soul.

Achziv Beach

Park, Ruins

Located north of Nahariya, you will find ancient ruins of the settlement of Achziv and two exquisite lagoons, set alongside the ocean. Most popular in the summer, the Achziv Beach National Park also offers overnight camping and is undoubtedly the best beachside campsite in the country.

Apollonia Beach

Natural Feature

Cliffs, caves, water, sun, and a man-made castle built entirely out of treasures of the sea make Apollonia Beach an essential excursion. Located about 30 minutes from Tel Aviv, right past Herzliya Pituach, this stretch offers the best of both worlds, offering beautiful sea views and fascinating historical sites.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
