Sandboarding in Israel

fun extreme

Sandboarding in Israel is a great activity while touring the Holy Land. In fact, Israel as a hot country is especially suitable for sand surfing. In sand surfing no previous experience is required, anyone can be a surfer. This attraction is suitable down south in the Negev Desert. Especially for families with kids. Also, the sand in the dunes in Israel is extremely thin and therefore excellent for surfing. The dry weather of the Negev allows this activity throughout the seasons. But I think in July-August might be too hot for that. 

Sandboarding in Israel: Where You Can Do Some Sand Surfing? 

If you’ve tried and failed one too many times at catching a wave in the Mediterranean next to Tel Aviv. Maybe you should consider heading to the Negev for some sand surfing. Now Sandboarding is a boardsport similar to surfing or snowboarding, but it involves riding the desert dunes rather than ocean waves or snowy peaks.

Dror BaMidbar” offers a sandboarding tour for the whole family (ages 2 and up) including a variety of boards (try sitting down if standing up isn’t for you) and a special relaxation area after your tour. In other words, don’t think about it too much and head to the Negev to catch some waves, rather, dunes. Now if you don’t want to take a tour and just want to surf on your own so the best place to that is Ramat Hanegev. The area also contains many tourist sites, particularly archaeological ruins including the ancient incense route cities of Avdat, Haluza, Nitzana, Shivta (three of them now a World Heritage site), as well as some of the Makhteshim.



The location of the best dunes in Israel is between Beer Sheva and Mitzpe Ramon, which is where this activity takes place. The sand is soft and not sticky. It’s accessible by bus from Beer Sheva or a 30-minute drive from Beer Sheva or Mitzpe Ramon. Remember guys the activity requires you to be able to climb the dunes
