A few ideas for a great Summer in israel with the kids. In Israel like in whole Northern Hemisphere it is very hot in Summer. The only palliative is that near the shore of the Mediterranean there is always a nice breeze to help you.
The kids are on vacation at home, so you come to Israel and want to find places where to spend all this energy that the kids seem to have in a constant supply. Here are a few ideas.
Amazing Tel Aviv Beaches on the Mediterranean
Beaches, Beaches, Beaches
Thirty-six Israel Beaches are certified Blue Flag. In everyone you’ll find life savers and all facilities for a great day at the beach.
To mention some of my favorites:
The Safari in Ramat Gan Israel
Talk to the animals
Playgrounds on most Israeli Cities
Playgrounds and parks for a great Summer in Israel
Surfing in Israel
Children may take classes of surfing in Hof Hacarmel Beach in Haifa. Or try surfing near Tel Aviv in the Havatzelet Hasharon Beach in Netanya.
Meet sea turtles
Children ages five and up can learn all about brown and green sea turtles and the dangers they face and how to protect them — at the Israel Sea Turtle Rescue Center in Mikhmoret. A tour of the Rescue Center and its hospital can be combined with a tour of nearby Beit Yanai Beach or Alexander Stream.
Swim with dolphins
Make childhood dreams come true and head down to Israel’s south to swim with everyone’s favorite marine mammal.
At the Dolphin Reef in Eilat, visitors can choose between observing the dolphins from the pier, snorkeling with them or going diving alongside them.
Famous Luna Park in Tel Aviv
Visit the amusement parks
Luna Park in Tel Aviv, opposite Ganei Yehoshua has a Ferris wheel, bumper cars and rides such as Swan Carousel, Demon Train, Pirate Ship and Top Spin.
Bird watching in Israel
One of the best places to see birds and other wildlife is Agamon Ha Hula, a Galilee park you can tour by foot, bicycle, golf cart or guided safari wagon. The peak times for birdwatching are the fall and spring migration seasons.
Rosh Hanikra grottoes
Located at the most northwestern tip of Israel, the marine caves at Rosh Hanikra are more than well-worth the journey.
Visitors take a short cable-car ride to sea level, where they can walk around the stunning grottoes and learn all about their fascinating history.
Go caving in Israel
Exploring Israel’s famous caves is another great option for escaping the scorching summer sun. Located throughout the country, visitor-friendly and accessible caves offer cool respite and a fun opportunity to learn more about nature, geology and history.
Tel Aviv Museum of Art
Go visit a museum
Sleep like a Bedouin in Israel
Hotels can get a bit boring for kids, so give them an only-in-Israel experience for a night or two: camping out Bedouin-style. The level of accommodations ranges from roughing it to luxury glamping.
Some options include Galilee Bedouin Camplodge in the Lower Galilee; Desert Days and Kibbutz Lotan in the Arava Valley; Silent Arrow and Desert Shade in Mitzpeh Ramon; Kfar Hanokdim near Arad; and Shayarot near Sde Boker.
