Five Most Beautiful Places in Israel

Discover Israel

Israel is an amazing piece of land! Now I get asked a lot what are in my opinion are the five most beautiful places in Israel? So here is my shortlist, some are known and places only locals go to, happy reading! So what makes Israel so beautiful? In one word? Its diversity! Allthgou Israel is a tiny piece of land it has different geographic and climatic regions. Climatically, Israel has three different regions: Mediterranean climate, Semi-arid climate, and desert climate.

The Land of Israel is a unique and diverse region; which was a landbridge and crossroads between kingdoms and empires. In fact the heart of the Middle East. In addition, it is located in the west of the area called the Fertile Crescent and in the south of the area called the Levant. Although the Land of Israel is one of the smallest countries in the world; it lies between diverse geological; physiological and climatic elements, and is a connecting point between the three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa.



Five Most Beautiful Places in Israel – Sea of Galilee

Without a doubt, one of the regions you must visit is the Sea of Galilee. There are so many beautiful lakes all over the globe. But there is nothing such as the Sea of Galilee. Much of the ministry of Jesus occurs on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. In those days, there was a continuous ribbon development of settlements and villages around the lake and plenty of trade and ferrying by boat. I’ve compiled the Ultimate Sea of Galilee Guide that you can read and prepare for your trip to the Holy Land.



The Holy City of Jerusalem

Jerusalem is a city that you can’t skip over. The view from Mount of Olives towards Old Town Jerusalem is for sure one of the Most Instagrammable Places in Jerusalem. What makes Jerusalem so appealing to me is its huge significance, the alleys are the same streets where Jesus walked. Each and every piece of stone has a special meaning to someone on the face of the planet. You can read more about Jerusalem in my Jerusalem Ultimate Guide.



Hermon Stream National Park

Banias is an ancient site that developed around a spring once associated with the Greek god Pan. It is located at the foot of Mount Hermon, north of the Golan Heights. The spring is the source of the Banias River, one of the main tributaries of the Jordan River. It’s known as the most beautiful hike in Israel. It’s not a very long trail and you can hike it for about an hour quite easily.



Five Most Beautiful Places in Israel – Dead Sea Area

Welcome to the lowest place on the planet! For sure this area is on the top of my list for the one the most beautiful places in Israel. I mean the setting of the Judaean Desert is amazing. Plus, there are so many things to see apart from the Dead Sea. Like Masada National Park and the Oasis of Ein Gedi which can turn this day unforgettable.



Ein Avdat National Park

Ein Avdat is an amazing canyon in the Negev Desert, south of Kibbutz Sde Boker. Archaeological evidence shows that Ein Avdat was inhabited by Nabateans and Catholic monks. Numerous springs at the southern opening of the canyon empty into deep pools in a series of waterfalls. Hiking in the canyon is majestic and keeps you astonished. Nearby they are interesting to visit. For example, Avdat National Park and Nana Winery.
